Dr. Ruchi Gupta has become well-known for her research into food allergy. The professor of medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine has published studies on important topics: from the prevalence and demographics of food allergy, to the financial burden of the disease, and quality of life effects.
She has brought to attention that 1 in 13 American kids has food allergies, and then in 2019 quantified the rise in food allergies in adults. She and her team remarkably found that 1 in 10 American adults has a food allergy. And now, she’s published an intriguing new book, called Food Without Fear.
Among Topics They Discuss:
In addition to her research and writing, Dr. Gupta is the founding director of the Center for Food Allergy & Asthma Research (CFAAR) at Northwestern, and an attending physician at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.
