E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association

September 2021 e-news Issue

Fall means foliage, football and in the case of Allergy Advocacy Action Awards, fun. The fun will be supplied by world renowned magician Alan Hudson who will bring his virtual magic shows online to our Action Awards. More about the Action Awards and Alan Hudson can be found in this issue of our e-news. You will also be able to learn about whether the flu vaccine is safe for people with egg allergies and read a Q&A about oral immunotherapy (OIT) as a means to treat allergies. Friendly epinephrine? In this issue you will meet Neffy, ARS Pharma’s nasal epinephrine awaiting FDA approval.

Action Awards Celebration

Our annual event will be held WEDNESDAY, October 20th at 7pm VIRTUALLY via our website.

This year we will honor Kirsi Jarvinen-Seppo MD, director of the Center for Food Allergy at Golisano Children’s Hospital and Maya Konoff, a college activist advocate with food allergies in downstate New York.

Both Kirsi and Maya have performed exemplary acts of service aiding individuals at risk for anaphylaxis.

So stay tuned for more information. We hope you will be able to join us for a fun-filled evening celebration honoring our award winners.
