The FPIES Foundation, a 501(c) 3 non-profit dedicated to overcoming the challenges of FPIES (Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome), is excited to announce plans for the 2nd annual Global FPIES Day.

First introduced by The FPIES Foundation in 2014, Global FPIES Day (October 14) is a day for spreading FPIES awareness, education and resources, worldwide, in order to better support children affected by FPIES, their families, and the medical professionals that support them. Global FPIES Day 2014 introduced bilingual resources for FPIES awareness and education, as well as documents for families to support diagnosis management in daily life.

This year, Global FPIES Day will invite the community to, “Be the Voice of Education,” with the introduction of the “VOICE” program: a Virtual Online Interactive Community Event. The FPIES Foundation will present multiple webinars addressing various aspects and levels of FPIES education and awareness. In addition, resources to support emergency planning, diagnosis management and daily living with FPIES will be offered via download on www.fpiesday.org, the day’s official webpage. Supporters will be invited to engage in various activities to honor the day.

The FPIES Foundation is now initiating a call for partners in Global FPIES Day. We seek organizations and individuals alike to spread information about this unique event, via online and local community awareness. To become an official Global FPIES Day partner and have your organization’s name and events related to Global FPIES Day displayed on our page, please contact Amanda LeFew ata.lefew@thefpiesfoundation.org or Joy Meyer at j.meyer@thefpiesfoundation.org.

“Our shoes may be small, but our steps will be big.”
