Thank You to the FORWARD Food Allergy Study Participants!

Dear FORWARD Parents and Caregivers,

To all our participants in Chicago, Cincinnati and Washington D.C., we are beyond thankful for your contribution to the FORWARD food allergy study! By participating in this research, you are playing an active role in helping educate researchers and physicians about your food allergy experiences. Our FORWARD team seeks to gain a better understanding of the development of food allergy and its differing effects on White, Black and Hispanic/Latino families. Because of YOU, we will be able to improve both clinical management and quality of life for children with food allergy and their families of all backgrounds.

We would also like to welcome you to our FORWARD holiday website! We have created a catalog of fun books that will educate and inspire your children to be the best versions of themselves. Always and especially during these unprecedented times, we believe it is important to support children with information, education and love. Our Can-inspired, health-related books can be downloaded for free! Expect to see a few of these books or a poster in your mailbox as a gift from our team.

Thank you once again for all your support. We look forward to continue having you as a part of the FORWARD family. Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season!
