Although there have been improvements over the years, racial, socioeconomic and ethnic disparities in food allergy are still prevalent in the United States, according to a presentation at the American College of Asthma, Allergy & Immunology Scientific Meeting.
Ruchi S. Gupta, MD, MPH, a professor of pediatrics and medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, explained that although previous work examined racial differences in asthma and rhinitis presentations, “in food allergy, it’s not an area that we’ve had a ton of research in.”
