This post is a sponsor post on behalf of the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference.
The Food Allergy Bloggers Conference(or FABlog Con for short) was born by some of the food allergy community’s most influential bloggers and advocates. Created from the idea that we, as food allergy bloggers, parents and advocates, are all connected by our stories, the battles we fight, and our desire to make the world a safer place for those suffering with food allergies, the Food Allergy Blogger Conference is committed to bringing together everyone in our community to grow our support network and to make the food allergy journey easier.
Food Allergy Bloggers Conference 2013
Advocacy leaders, non-profits, doctors, researchers, parents, patients, and the companies who provide solutions that support them, as well as anyone connected to food allergies, asthma EoE, celiac disease, or food intolerance are invited to join in the 2013 Food Allergy Bloggers Conference. We are united, fighting many of the same battles with our diseases. We know one another through our virtual interactions, shared experiences, support, outrage, and tears and the power and excitement that happens when we all finally get to actually meet each other is certain!
