As temperatures fall into a lovely autumn, things are heating up here at the Allergy Advocacy Association. We have been very busy making plans for our second annual Rochester Allergy Awards Gala at ARTISAN Works on October 10 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. We will be honoring Dr. Jeremy Cushman from the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and Jamie Kosten who saved the life of his father, a beekeeper, from a life threatening anaphylaxis response to bee stings. Below you can read all about our award recipients’ accomplishments.
We hope you can join us for a fun night with raffles for numerous baskets that are packed full of restaurant gift certificates and much more. There will also be a photo booth, great food and drinks, music and a crowd of people all interested in the prevention of anaphylaxis thru AWARENESS, ALERTNESS & ACTION. Proceeds from ticket sales will be used for our Epi Near You New York training program given to personnel at day care centers, summer camps, college campuses and other public venues on how to recognize someone having a severe allergic reaction and how to administer epinephrine. Register here and find out sponsorship opportunities.
We look forward to seeing you there!
