  • "I am very pleased to take part in FAI's new steering committee," said Committee Chair Gina Clowes. "For 11 years FAI has led the way in funding research to find a cure to this life-threatening disease. Nothing is more important to me and millions of other parents who wish they could take their children to restaurants, birthday parties and school cafeterias without living in constant fear of exposure to potentially deadly allergens like peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs and wheat."

    "My fellow committee members are the best and brightest advocates from all over the country," Clowes continued. "Every day they are out in their communities making a difference for families with food allergies. As a group, we will devote their attention, resources and expertise toward making sure the federal government is on the leading edge to find a cure."
