It’s always nice to reward people who go well above the call of duty to make the world a better (and safer) place. Dr. Jeremy Cushman, who will be presented with the John J. Condemi award, helped to implement the Check and Inject program that allows EMTs to administer epinephrine using a vial and syringe. This program is saving thousands of dollars every year and has increased awareness of anaphylaxis and the role epinephrine plays in saving lives.
Our Ruth T. Cornell award will be presented to Jamie Kosten who saved is father’s life by administering epinephrine after his father was stung by a bee. Congratulations to both!

On Thursday October 10th the Allergy Advocacy Association will hold our second annual Action Awards Gala. Our association will honor Jeremy Cushman MD and Jamie Kosten; Dr. Jeremy Cushman will receive the John J. Condemi award and Jamie Kosten will receive the Ruthie T. Cornell award.
Two men could hardly be more different than Jeremy and Jamie. One is a grown man with many years as a practicing physician. The other is a young man working his way towards graduation from McQuaid Jesuit High School. Both men, however, have aided individuals at risk for anaphylaxis in two very unique ways. And saved lives, too!
