Teen Events 2016 / 2017
Teens are at the highest risk for fatal, food-induced anaphylactic reactions. Why? Teens like to take risks! Educate yourself and others on how to manage your food allergy and social situations that may come up and how to avoid those risks. Learn the steps to being prepared in case you do have a reaction.

You won’t want to miss UFAN’s annual Teen Conference in Salt Lake City. What a great place to meet other local teens with food allergies and EoE. You will learn from each other and food allergy/EoE experts from across the country.
Share your experience and compassion with others as you volunteer at UFAN events. It feels amazing to help and lift others who may be new to the world of food allergy. It’s fun and a great way to get to know others and feel positive about your food allergy.
Contact Kimberly Faerber, UFAN Teen Director at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more involved or for more information on any of our teen events.
