E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association

March 2021

Greetings. March brings us daylight savings time, St. Patrick’s Day and the NCAA Basketball tournament. But before Spring arrives the Allergy Advocacy is already busy raising awareness of the dangers of life-threatening allergies. In this issue we’ll provide a preview of our lobbying efforts for “Teacher Training,” proposed legislation for anaphylaxis emergency training in NYS public schools. This issue also contains three articles on interesting and important research. From looking at ways to desensitize peanut allergic toddlers, to exploring the fill rate of prescriptions for epinephrine auto-injectors to discovering the role a natural protein plays in allergies and autoimmune conditions, we offer our readers the very latest information.

When allergic reactions happen, learn how to take action! Our Epi Near You NY anaphylaxis emergency training program is now VIRTUAL! Our cost-free seminars provide:

  • Free state approved training presentation
  • New York State recognized certification
  • Assistance for public entities to obtain a non-patient specific prescription for emergency epinephrine.

Enjoy "March Madness" while it lasts! Be safe and healthy! Best wishes!
