Abstract

The American Latex Allergy Association is a national non-profit 501,(c)(3), tax exempt organization that provides educational information about latex allergy and supports latex-allergic individuals. Originally, the organization was formed by a group of approximately 30 health care workers who acquired latex allergy and sought to provide information and support for one another, as well as to other persons and organizations. The mission of the American Latex Allergy Association is to create awareness of latex allergy through education and to provide support to individuals who have been diagnosed with latex allergy. Their board of directors consists of volunteers, elected officers, and professional advisors. A newsletter called The ALERT is published quarterly.
