This year's Allergy Action Awards was a great event! We honored our mentors and guiding lights, Ruth T. Cornell and Dr. John J. Condemi, by recognizing the invaluable work of Dr. Anitha Shrikhande and the Honorable Thomas Abinanti.
The Allergy Action Awards also reminds all that the work continues and needs your support to succeed. At the season of generosity, Giving Tuesday is on November 28th. Please consider how you can support your values by contributing what you can in time and financial support. No amount of either is too small and will be deeply appreciated.
