Alpha-gal Meat Allergy-Caused by a Tick
Thursday, June 16 at 12 pm (Zoom)
Do you know someone who can no longer eat meat? Allergist Erin McGintee, MD and ENT and allergy Associates, and a member of the Medical Advisory Panel of Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Regional Tick-Borne Disease Resource Center, will lecture about the Alpha-gal meat allergy which is caused by a bite from the lone star tick. Dr. McGintee has treated over 500 East End residents for this allergy and she is considered the regional expert in the field, having been interviewed about Alpha-gal by the Associated Press, New York City television stations, Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, and even the BBC. Zoom links will be emailed the day of the class.
