E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association

Greetings! There is an African Proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together”. The coronavirus crisis has impacted every one of us. Now is the time for unifying rather than divisive action. In this issue we highlight four examples of positive action. We report how the Food and Drug Administration clarified their food allergen guidelines and developed a FAQs page providing additional information. Next, read about why and how Thomas and Dima Silvera founded the Elijah-Alavi Foundation. Other news items include how the race for a COVID-19 vaccine has impacted drug pricing reform and a new study showing how there might be a pill preventing attacks of life-threatening anaphylaxis. Thanks very much for your support and encouragement. Best wishes!
