E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association

January, 2019

Brrrr… it’s cold outside. We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are feeling as energized as we are for the New Year.

This issue provides some important information on the current shortage of Epi-PensTM. It suggests alternatives that are available immediately, so be sure to read Article 1 and share the details with family and friends. We also cover recent research regarding peanut patches and peanut pills, as well as allergies in adults and medical misinformation on the Web.

Our New Year’s resolution is to continue to bring you valuable information, and to work tirelessly to prevent deaths from anaphylaxis through our programs of awareness, alertness and action. Be sure and contact us if you are interested in a free seminar on how to administer epinephrine in an emergency.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2019!
