Pro Football Legend Jerome Bettis & Cookbook Guru Robin Miller
Nearly six million Americans are at risk for anaphylaxis – a severe allergic reaction that happens quickly and may cause death – and numerous studies indicate that the rate of anaphylaxis has increased in recent years.
Life-threatening allergic reactions may occur as a result of exposure to allergens including foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, dairy, eggs, soy and wheat; insect stings; latex and medication, among other allergens. Food is the most commonly-identified anaphylaxis trigger.
Professional football legend Jerome Bettis, who is allergic to shellfish, and Food Network star Robin Miller, who is allergic to eggs, both take essential life-saving steps as part of their overall severe allergy action plan, including avoiding their allergens and carrying an epinephrine auto-injector. Miller and Bettis will carry Auvi-QTM (epinephrine injection, USP), a new epinephrine auto-injector now available via prescription. Auvi-Q is the first-and-only compact epinephrine auto-injector with audio and visual cues for the emergency treatment of life-threatening allergic reactions. Bettis and Miller are teaming up to help people like them, as well as parents and caregivers of those at risk for anaphylaxis by providing allergy-friendly recipes and tips for those hosting Big Game parties.

Eric has traveled to France, Italy, New Zealand, Argentina and Chile for the opportunity to explore wine grape regions or work harvests. In his spare time, Eric enjoys outdoor sports, food and wine. He lives in San Luis Obispo.
