Summer greetings! We actually had a few days in a row without rain so all are rejoicing. It is now bee sting season and you would be amazed at the number of children as well as adults who do not know they are allergic. Even if you have been stung previously in your life with no problem, you could become allergic over time. If you are at a fitness club, outdoor pool, summer camp, daycare center or restaurant, be sure and mention to the manager that they are now allowed to stock epinephrine auto-injector devices to use in an emergency. Your Allergy Advocacy Association will provide training on how to administer it and give them a prescription that can be filled at any Wegmans. Just email us if you know anyone who would be interested.
Be sure to read below about our very successful Food Allergy Awareness Day in Albany. We are now even more aware of all the work that still needs to be done, particularly keeping the pharmaceutical companies in line. But step by step we will get there….
Here’s wishing you and your family a safe and happy summer!
