Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association, April, 2016
Will April snow showers bring May flowers? Apparently daffodils have an anti-freeze substance in their stems — sure wish humans did too.
We have lots of good news to report in this month’s newsletter. First, excellent progress is being made in the state legislature in regard to the Emergency Allergy Treatment Act (details below). It has been passed by the senate and has a good chance of coming up for a vote in the assembly this spring. We would love to have your help at our Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Awareness Day in Albany on May 4th, or feel free to sign our online petition at change.org. Together we can make a real difference in saving lives!
We also report on several new ways to administer epinephrine that are being developed, as well as new research on causes of peanut allergies. And lastly, studies are showing that school epi-pen stocking legislation really is saving lives.
We thank you again for all your support and wish you a pleasant spring whenever it arrives…
