One and all had a fantastic time at the second annual Allergy Action Awards gala. With tables decorated with teal pumpkins, along with raffle baskets and goodie bags, we celebrated those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help keep our community safe. Read all about our award recipients and how proceeds from the event will help to continue our work on educating the community about what to do if someone is experiencing anaphylaxis. Looking forward to seeing you there next year!
Action Awards Gala is BOFFO!!!***

The Allergy Advocacy Association Awards Gala was held at ARTISAN Works in Rochester NY on October 10th. Our audience enjoyed fabulous entertainment, food and fun!
We honored Dr. Jeremy Cushman, developer of the Emergency Medical Services' Syringe Epinephrine Kit at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and Jamie Kosten who saved the life of his father, a beekeeper, from a life threatening anaphylaxis response to bee stings.
Proceeds from ticket sales will be used for training personnel at day care centers, summer camps, college campuses and other public venues on how to recognize someone having a severe allergic reaction and how to administer epinephrine.
