There are more than 800,000 Australians living with allergy but less than 1% are subscribed to our FREE allergy support and advice network. 

We have a dedicated telephone helpline with trained health educators to listen, share information and resources, and point people in the right direction for treatment.

Let them know that Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia is here to help and that they can subscribe to our newsletter.
