Allergy Advocacy Association: Albany Reset
After much consideration about where we are as an organization and how we continue the work towards our mission, we’ve decided to forgo this year’s trip to Albany. We’ll work closely with the allergy community to better understand their challenges as they manage their allergies and how we can better support them with legislative outreach and other advocacy activities.
Issues of anaphylaxis emergency school teacher training; restrictions upon pharmaceutical pricing policies and protecting families with food allergies in restaurants are very important to our community. We look forward to working with the Monroe County allergy community, health care professionals and NYS representatives and their staffs to support legislation to make it easy to keep our friends and family safe during an episode of anaphylaxis, no matter where they are. This information will be used to focus our attention on the right legislation as we continue our work in Albany next year.
The vision of the Allergy Advocacy Association is a clear and direct one. "Not another life lost to anaphylaxis — Not another life lost to ANY life-threatening allergies!" Best wishes and many thanks!
