Examining the Quality of Life of People with Sesame Allergy

Research Question:
Does the Food Allergy, Safety, Treatment, Education and Research (FASTER) Act impact the quality of life of people with sesame allergy?

Basic Study Information

The purpose of this study is to better understand individuals' and families' experiences with having (or having a child or children) with Ig-E-mediated sesame allergy and how managing sesame allergy affects your quality of life. We hope that by investigating the effects of the Food Allergy Safety, Treatment, Education, and Research (FASTER) Act on individuals' quality of life, we can gain a better understanding of its impact and determine if it has been beneficial. This knowledge will enable us, as medical professionals, to advocate more effectively to policymakers. If you decide to take part in this study, you will be asked to complete 1 survey consisting of 6 parts that will take about 10 minutes to complete. The surveys will collect your demographic information, ask questions about how sesame allergies affect your/your child’s quality of life, before and after the FASTER Act / January 2023. You can participate if you are 18 years or older with a sesame allergy or the parent of a child with a sesame allergy. If you are interested click on the link below.
