Greetings! Ready or not, here comes the holiday season!
Each year during October and November, medical conferences occur all across America, particularly pertaining to life-threatening allergies. In this month’s newsletter you can read about new medical research and important information about food allergies and medications, including promising therapies that could prove helpful to individuals and families at risk for dangerous anaphylaxis emergencies.
Late October is also the time for the Action Awards Celebration. This annual virtual Halloween event was well attended again this year. Sandy Glantz, Thomas Silvera and Ondina Hawthorne, the winners of the John J. Condemi Award and the Ruthie T. Cornell Award, appeared in tribute videos and were on hand to enjoy the festivities. The amazing magician and mentalist Gary Ferrar kept entertained all with tricks and slights of hand. Many thanks again to our donors for their generous financial contributions!
What is anaphylaxis? How would you recognize an anaphylaxis emergency? And would you know what are the right things to do? For many people, even those that have a life-threatening allergy, the answer is no.
The Allergy Advocacy Association has a solution: Epi Near You New York anaphylaxis emergency training program. This life saving program can be delivered via webinar or face-to-face.
Upon completion of the training session you receive:
- New York State recognized certification to stock and administer epinephrine, and
- Assistance for public entities to obtain a non-patient specific prescription for emergency epinephrine

Best holiday wishes to one and all!
