The Food Allergy Bloggers Conference was founded in 2013 by Jenny Sprague and Homa Woodrum. This unique conference unites food allergy bloggers with the advocates, medical professionals, and the companies who support food allergy living and safety at one event. With dual tracks of panel discussions focused on disease management and blogging information attendees have chance to learn from experts, which can later be applied and shared with their readers and communities.
History: Two Years in the Making…
The idea for a FAB Conference is something Jenny Sprague had been pondering for about two years. It stems from the longing to connect , share, learn, and meet all these amazing people she had come to know virtually, through Twitter, Facebook, reading their blogs, or books. They had helped guide her on the food allergy journey, and in turn, she has tried to help others. As Jenny verbalized this idea and shared it among her inner circle of friends, they too saw the value, and were equally excited at the idea of having a conference for all of us. This conference is a great opportunity for us to come together, to share, learn and connect with each other!
