We sincerely hope you and yours are having a lovely summer season.
In this toasty-warm July, we look at interesting new treatments for allergies that use new technology to address the weaknesses of existing therapies. Summer being the travel season, Congressional support to require epinephrine-auto-injectors on airlines is most timely and builds on the advocacy work of many of this issue. Consistent with well documented healthcare delivery disparities, new research confirms that people of color have more food allergies that white people. While the focus is often on food allergies, it is good to be reminded that bee sting allergies can be just as dangerous. (Pro trip, keep your auto injectors with you at all times.)
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 you receive:
