Media Invitation - Press briefing on severe allergies



    MONTREAL, June 3 /CNW/ -

    
    Would you be able to help a friend having a severe allergic reaction?
                    Even during a friendly round of golf?

     Do you know how to use an EpiPen(R) (epinephrine) Auto-Injector,
                 the device that could save a person's life?

    - 300,000 Quebeckers are at risk for severe allergies known as
      anaphylaxis. Most people who know someone with anaphylaxis don't know
      how to use an EpiPen(R) (epinephrine) Auto-Injector.

    - Outdoor activities could increase the risk of being exposed to an
      allergen leading to an anaphylactic attack for some sufferers.
      Anaphylaxis can be fatal within minutes if untreated.

    - Golf Le Mirage in Terrebonne recognizes the importance of being
      prepared in the event of an anaphylactic attack and how training is
      essential.

         Mario Julien, Executive Chef of Golf Le Mirage Restaurant,
                                     and
                       Chantal de Montigny, Dietitian,
           Association québécoise des allergies alimentaires (AQAA)
                       invite the press to meet them on

           Wednesday, June 11th, 2008 at 11 a.m. at Golf Le Mirage

    person's life through a simulated anaphylactic attack.
