Show Us Your Epi!

Atlanta Allergy & Asthma News
At this time there is no cure for food allergies, and strict avoidance of the allergy-causing food is the only way to prevent a reaction. Teenagers and young adults with food allergies are at the highest risk of fatal food-induced anaphylaxis.

Additionally, individuals with food allergies who also have asthma may be at increased risk for severe food allergy reactions. You must always be prepared for an accidental ingestion by carrying self-injectable epinephrine. Do not leave home without an epinephrine auto-injector!

During Food Allergy Awareness Week (May 10 through 16) and for the remainder of May, Atlanta Allergy & Asthma will be asking our patients at risk for anaphylaxis to “Show us your Epi!”

If you have your epinephrine auto-injector with you and you show it to us, you will be entered into a drawing for a prize package. Each of our 18 clinics will have a winner.
