E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association

April 2018

Will April showers (and flurries!) bring May flowers? We certainly hope so. This month we offer updates on various studies regarding how to prevent and treat anaphylaxis from food or other allergies. And since this is the time of year to sign up kids for summer camp, we offer some excellent advice for choosing the right one that will keep your child safe.

The Allergy Advocacy Association will be participating with other activists at the New York State Capitol in Albany on Wednesday, May 16. Our Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Awareness Event will be at the entrance to the Legislative Office Building located in the capitol concourse. We sincerely hope that you can join us. 

If you can help here is a reminder of a couple of research opportunities:

If you are pregnant or just had a baby, The Department of Pediatrics, Division of Allergy and Immunology at the University of Rochester is looking for a study participant just like you! For more information please call 585-275-8991.

Become a FARE Advocate for Research!

Food Allergies Research and Education (FARE) has collected some incredible data since the launch of the FARE Patient Registry, with more than 2,000 patients enrolled. But they need to grow the registry further, because more data means greater opportunities for breakthroughs.

Add your history to our growing database of food allergy patients by completing surveys and more.

Wishing you a very happy spring,
