FAAN Kids’ Congress on Capitol Hill

Posted 10.2.09 | Mallory West

KidsCongressLogoThis week 80 kids with food allergies from around the country are gathered in Washington, D.C. to help raise awareness about food allergy at the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN) Kids’ Congress on Capitol Hill. The “Junior Ambassadors” will visit with legislators to share their experiences about living with food allergies and to urge them to pass the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Management Act (FAAMA) and fund food allergy research and education.

The FAAMA bill has been reintroduced to Congress after it was passed by the House in 2008, but was not taken up by the Senate before Congress adjourned last summer.

To find out more about the Kids’ Congress and how you can support the FAAMA bill, visit the FAAN Web site.
