About NEOFAN

In 2013, Dr. Abigail Glick’s world changed when her then 18 month son began violently vomiting and lost consciousness after ingesting a cashew. Her oldest son has egg, milk and tree nut allergies and her middle son a peanut allergy and eosinophilic esophagitis. In 2015, with nowhere to turn, feeling overwhelmed and alone, Dr. Glick launched Northeast Ohio Food Allergy Network.

The mission of Northeast Ohio Food Allergy Network is to minimize the impact of food allergies in families’ lives through support, education, research and advocacy. Our regional group, established for all ages and stages, will provide tools to aid in the well-being of those with food allergies.
