Every year we look forward to Food Allergy Awareness Day at Frontier Field. We hope you can join us on Sunday, August 12th at 12 noon where the fabulous Rochester Red Wings will be hosting the Charlotte Knights. We sincerely appreciate all that the Red Wings organization does to help our cause.
Speaking of which, 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 use it and give them a prescription that can be filled at any Wegmans.
If you can help, here is a reminder of a research opportunity:
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!
