The FARE Clinical Network is expanding, and will now comprise 28 centers of excellence across the country. The FARE Clinical Network, dedicated to changing the face of food allergy care, is the only collaborative network of its kind. Five centers have recently joined the network, which now comprises 28 centers of excellence across the country.
FARE is pleased to have the following centers join the FARE Clinical Network:
- Columbia University Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital; New York, New York

Launched in 2015, the FARE Clinical Network is made up of 28 leading research and care sites nationwide and represents an investment by FARE of approximately $2.7 million annually.
In approximately one year, FARE Clinical Network centers served more than 56,000 patients with food allergies. More than a third of those patients were new to the centers, reinforcing the urgent need for initiatives such as the network.
FARE Clinical Network centers are serving as sites for clinical trials for the development of new therapeutics. They are also developing best practices for the care of patients with food allergies.
FARE plans to further expand the network to 40 to 50 sites within the next three years.
