Frederick Allergist Sponsors Peanut-Free Night at Keys Game

Frederick, MD – (June 1, 2009) When it comes to the dangers of food allergies, Dr. Lourdes Brigida Hunter wants Keys fans to know the score. For someone who is allergic to peanuts, a fun night at the ballpark can turn into a medical emergency.

To raise awareness about the dangers of peanut allergies, Dr. Hunter is sponsoring “peanut-free night” at the Frederick Keys baseball game on Thursday, June 25. The Keys will be taking on the Winston-Salem Dash in the first of a three-game series. To prepare for the event, Harry Grove Stadium will be washed down multiple times prior to the game to create a safe, peanut-free environment for allergy sufferers. Members of Dr. Hunter’s staff will be on hand to provide information about allergies and award a door prize. One of Dr. Hunter’s patients will have the honor of throwing out the first pitch of the game.

“An allergic reaction to peanuts can cause symptoms ranging from minor irritation to a life-threatening condition called anaphylaxis,” said Dr. Hunter. “People with peanut allergies are always at risk of having a serious reaction, even if symptoms have been mild in the past.” An allergist can conduct a skin test to confirm the existence or non-existence of peanut allergy.

Dr. Hunter is a Board Certified Allergist at Frederick Allergy and Asthma Center located at 201 Thomas Johnson Drive in Frederick. For more information call 301-360-0776 or
