The Stevens Johnson Syndrome Foundation (Julie Foundation for allergic drug reactions) is a non-profit organization. The purpose of the foundation is to provide the public and medical communities with information on adverse allergic drug reactions.

Our goal is to make the public aware of adverse reactions, so that a quick diagnosis may be made and the offending drug stopped as soon as possible.
