Mission:
The FPIES Foundation is dedicated to overcoming the challenges of FPIES by offering tools for education, support, and advocacy to empower families and the medical community.
Results:
In the last year, we applied for and received our official 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the IRS, allowing us to further expand our programs and services for the FPIES community at large.

We have created a brand new, extensively expanded website. It is packed with FPIES resources for medical professionals and families alike, once more supporting our mission of FPIES education and awareness. Our database of FPIES-friendly medical professionals is a keystone to our web offerings.

We have partnered with our esteemed Medical Advisory Board to create an in-depth Q&A. This document provides medically responsible answers to questions asked by the FPIES community.

Be sure to follow our activities during Food Allergy Awareness Week 2013!

My family first became aware of the FPIES Foundation through our pediatric nutritionist at CHOP. After many years of misdiagnosis we were happy to have a diagnosis, but were completely overwhelmed with questions we had no answers for. Through the foundation I have learned how to care for my ... more »
