Join us for the "Black People Like Me" virtual conference series, brought to you by the Allergy & Asthma Network. This series highlights the heightened risk of food allergies among Black Americans, who not only have a higher prevalence of allergies but also experience more severe outcomes, such as anaphylaxis and increased ER visits.

During this conference, you'll gain valuable insights into the misdiagnosis and underdiagnosis of food allergies within the Black community. Learn practical tips for managing allergies at social events, hear from individuals living with food allergies about their experiences, and understand how to advocate effectively for yourself or a loved one.

Special Offer for Attendees: The first 100 patients or caregivers residing in the U.S. who register and attend the entire presentation will receive a $25 gift card. To be eligible, participants must provide a valid U.S. address and phone number.
