Utah Food Allergy Network (UFAN) is a local, 501(c)3 non-profit food allergy resource with a Medical Advisory Board. If you’re not familiar with us, take a moment to learn who we are, see what we’ve accomplished in our short nine years, and peruse the many services we can offer your family.

-UFAN’s mission is to provide outreach to the newly diagnosed and the community at large, offering support, promoting education, building awareness of the severity of food allergies and anaphylaxis, and advocating for positive change.

What We’ve Done

Founded in 2007 by a concerned group of moms, UFAN has flourished into a mighty force for good with almost 1,000 members including parents, adults, physicians, school nurses, community agencies, and schools.  UFAN advocated for the passing of HB 101 Emergency Injection for Anaphylactic Reaction Act in 2008. President Michelle Fogg and Pediatric Residents at PCH created A Shot to Live (ashottolive.org), an online epinephrine training program approved by the Utah Department of Health that is being used statewide. We have presented at the Utah School Nurses annual conference, provided school training to staff and teachers, developed awareness assemblies for school aged children, advocated and lobbied at the state capital, held yearly food-free community events, and participate in numerous national councils.

UFAN also has a Division of Eosinophilic Support (DOES) for those suffering from eosinophilic disorders as well. We have a Teen Division for ages 11-18.
