Food Allergy Support & Education (FASE) Program

Food Allergy Support and Education (FASE) Program educates and supports our patients and families affected by food protein-induced immune disorders. We focus in particular on patients and families affected by IgE-mediated food allergy, but also food protein-induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) and eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE).

We aim to help patients and their families gain a more complete understanding of food allergy, and how they can live successfully despite it.  

FASE also has a large community outreach component, educating teachers and staff, daycare providers, camp counselors, and students about the seriousness of food allergy.

Support Between Appointments

We also provide over-the-phone support for patients and families who would like to touch base with us between their yearly appointments.

Program Leadership

The FASE Program is led by Sarah Boudreau-Romano, MD. Dr. Boudreau-Romano is an attending in the Division of Allergy and Immunology and an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. She has four children, three of whom have food protein induced immune disorders. This background has provided her with both professional knowledge and personal experience to share with patients and their families. In 2012, she started the blog The Allergist Mom to support and educate families of children with food allergies.
