Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy in the United States

Coordinating Committee

We established a coordinating committee to oversee the process of guidelines development, to provide advice to NIAID throughout the process, to review the guidelines drafts, and to assist in disseminating the final version of the guidelines. The coordinating committee was composed of professional organizations, advocacy groups, and federal agencies who appointed one or more representatives to serve on the committee.

See the coordinating committee representatives’ financial disclosures.
