     The Food Allergy Association of Wisconsin, Southeast Wisconsin Chapter was first formed
     in November 2010 and officially became a chapter of the Food Allergy Association of
   Wisconsin in April 2011. The volunteer group is made up of families who are living
  with severe and life threatening food allergies.  We hope to connect families and adults
 living with food allergies in Southeast Wisconsin, raise awareness and provide support
and educational resources for parents, caregivers, peers and educators about safely caring for children with food allergies.

 

Welcome to the Southeast Wisconsin Chapter in Waukesha

allergy supplies and cases, cookbooks, and so much more!
 
There will also be free samples... some limited items - so get there early!
 
We will have our wonderful dietitians from Children's Hospital,
at least one allergist, material from our psychologist who specializes in anxiety,
and material (and hopefully representatives) from FARE and Mylan (epipen).
 
It will be an amazing event you will not want to miss!
