About the Documentary

FARE teamed up with the Discovery Channel to produce a new medical documentary, “An Emerging Epidemic: Food Allergies in America.” The hour-long documentary, narrated by Steve Carell, explores the science of food allergy, what it is like to live with the disease, and the state of food allergy research, including the status of various treatments under study.  The program was supported by an educational grant from FARE and Mylan Specialty L.P.
Filmmakers traveled across the country to profile individuals and families who are managing food allergies to illustrate the daily challenges they face and the solutions they employ to address those challenges. Some of the nation’s leading food allergy experts are interviewed in the documentary, including Drs. Hugh Sampson of Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Kari Nadeau of Stanford University, Ruchi Gupta of Northwestern University and Hemant Sharma of Children’s National Medical Center.  
For schools, a chaptered version of the documentary and additional teacher and classroom materials will be made available through Discovery Education, the country’s largest provider of multimedia educational content for the classroom.
