Jane Hersey - Biography

Jane Hersey has worked with families of chemically-sensitive children for 22 years. Using the findings of pediatrician/allergist, Ben F. Feingold, MD, she first helped her family and went on to volunteer in the parent support group called the Feingold Association.

She worked closely with Dr. Feingold until his death in 1982, and served the Association in many capacities: first vice president, president, executive director, and editor of the Association's newsletter Pure Facts. She is currently the national director and author of the book "Why Can't My Child Behave?"

Ms. Hersey has twice testified before the National Institutes of Health and has represented the Association on radio and television.
