Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Announces New Food Allergy Initiative Advocacy Steering Committee
Date:5/14/2009

Leading parent advocates from across the country join forces to advocate for more research funding to find a cure

WASHINGTON, May 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, as we continue to mark Food Allergy Awareness Week, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., member of the Board of Directors of the Food Allergy Initiative (FAI), announced the formation of FAI's Advocacy Steering Committee. The committee's objectives are to help build a strong nationwide presence for the food allergy community in the public policy arena; and to actively seek to increase federal funding of food allergy research, as scientists believe that with proper funding, a cure can be found in less than a decade.

The new steering committee comprises 16 leading parent advocates nationwide who confront the daily dangers of raising children with severe food allergies.

"FAI is tremendously honored and grateful to have such an esteemed group of parents who are willing to join our effort to find a cure," said Kennedy. "These parents are proven advocates and support group leaders in their local communities. We are thrilled to add their energy and expertise to our advocacy program."

Steering committee members include:

  • Gina Clowes, Chair - AllergyMoms; Cranberry Township, PA
  • Denise Bunning - Mothers of Children Having Allergies; Lake Forest, IL
  • Nicole Smith - Allergic Child; Colorado Springs, CO
  • Sue Wagner & Carol D'Agnese - San Diego Food Allergy; San Diego, CA
  • Rhonda Riggott Stevens - Education & Advocacy Solutions; Durham, CT
  • Debbie Hogan - Parents of Children with Food Allergies; Tampa, FL
  • Maria Acebal - Safe at School Partners, Bethesda, MD
  • Nona Narvaez - Anaphylaxis and Food Allergy Association of Minnesota; St. Pa
