Take Me Out to the Ball Game!
Your Allergy Advocacy Association is proud to announce we’re taking the “show on the road” this spring and summer. What better place to raise awareness than at baseball parks, where peanuts and crackerjack are the top sellers?
Two of the International League baseball teams in western New York, the Buffalo Bisons and the Rochester Red Wings, have scheduled allergy awareness events for this coming season. The first will be at Pilot Park in Buffalo on SUNDAY, MAY 4TH. The title of the event is “FOOD ALLERGY AWARENESS DAY: Be Food Aware Not Food Afraid!” Game time is at 1pm. Our association will set up an exhibit booth in advance, and there will be a video highlighting the major points at the events. Doctors Shahzad Mustafa and Theresa Bingemann are consultants who are taking the time to actively participate, and representatives from both Mylan and Sanofi pharmaceuticals will be in attendance. Even baseball players can get an anaphylaxis attack as you will see in the article below.
The second event will be at Frontier Field in Rochester on SUNDAY, JUNE 29TH at 1pm. We hope you will take this opportunity to come out and support our teams—both baseball and those who work tirelessly to help keep our families safe.
