The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network
The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN™) was established in 1991 by Anne Muñoz-Furlong, at a time when information about food allergies was difficult to find. Anne’s daughter was diagnosed with milk and egg allergy, and founding FAAN was a way of providing education and support to the many other parents who needed help managing food allergy.
FAAN is now the most trusted source of information, programs, and resources related to food allergy and anaphylaxis. Its membership now stands at approximately 22,000 worldwide and includes families, dietitians, nurses, physicians, school staff, and representatives from government agencies and the food and pharmaceutical industries. FAAN serves as the communication link between the patient and others.–From the website.
