Each year, FAAN recognizes individuals or organizations that have provided outstanding service or have made significant contributions to food allergy awareness, education, outreach or advocacy. The awards were named in honor of the daughter of Anne Muñoz-Furlong, FAAN's founder. This year, Loudoun Allergy Network (LAN) Chairperson, Thanita Glancey, was one of the recipients to receive this honor.
Thanita traveled to Chicago for the annual Food Allergy & Anaphylactic Network (FAAN) Support Group Leaders Summit this past March. Support group leaders from around the nation meet and discuss important information regarding food allergy research, disability rights concerns, and how to support our allergic community . The Saturday following, Thanita was invited to attend the FAAN conference, to be honored with the Mariel C. Furlong Award for Making a Difference. It was a proud and emotional day.
