The Food Allergy Awareness Network (FAAN) is working once again to push the Senate to enact the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Management Act (FAAMA). FAAMA outlines voluntary national guidelines to help schools manage students affected by food allergy and anaphylaxis.
As some of you might already know, FAAMA was passed by the House in 2008, and earned support from 42 Senators. Unfortunately, FAAMA was not taken up by the Senate before it adjourned.
FAAN provides some great talking points for reaching out to your US Senators and US Representative and asking for their support as well as contact information. If you’re interested in getting involved, check out FAAN’s Web site at http://bit.ly/19x8zk.
