Food Equality Initiative, FEI presents a live webinar, For The Health™: A Conversation on Race & Food Allergy featuring a diverse panel to promote health equity

Food Equality Initiative (FEI), a nonprofit with the mission to improve health and end hunger in individuals diagnosed with food allergies and celiac disease announced the first of the “For the Health” webinar series, A Conversation on Race & Food Allergy.

This webinar is scheduled for Friday, June 19, 2020, from 11:00, am EST - 12:00 pm EST.

Intentionally planned on Juneteeth, the national holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the U.S. this panel will bring together health experts to discuss actionable ways that we can end systematic health disparities in food allergy.

The webinar was inspired by this Open Letter to the Allergy Community written by Emily Brown, CEO of Food Equality Initiative, after the murder of George Floyd that has focused the nation's attention on the public health crisis of police brutality, which targets black men and women.

Emily Brown says this, “The For the Health™ webinar is to start an open dialogue on racial and economic disparities in food allergy. It is my hope that words will move to action and we will see real lasting change.”

The goal of this webinar, For The Health™ is to reduce racial disparities in food allergy. Topics will include:

  • The impacts of Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) as it relates to food allergy.
  • Community resources and education about racial disparities in food allergy.
  • Actionable ways that allies and industry can support organizations committed to a more inclusive environment.

Research shows that Black children are 7% more likely to have food allergies compared to white children, are diagnosed less frequently, receive less medical care, and are more likely to experience anaphylaxis.

The panelist include:

  • Emily Brown, Founder, and CEO of Food Equality Initiative
  • Denise Woodard, Founder, and CEO of Partake Food s
  • Thomas Silvera, President of the Elijah-Alavi Foundation
