Food Allergy Research & Education
National Programs Manager
Kristi Grim is the College Outreach Manager for Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE). As part of the FARE team, Kristi works to ensure the safety and inclusion of students with food allergies on college campuses. Kristi worked with committees and expert stakeholders to develop FARE's Pilot Guidelines for Managing Food Allergies in Higher Education, which form the basis for the College Food Allergy Program. She worked with universities to implement the guidelines and training during a pilot phase of the program in 2015, and continues to expand FARE's reach of schools trained during the next phase of the program, which includes development of a database to assist prospective students in finding schools who have training and offer support systems for students with food allergies.
