PRLog - Mar. 9, 2012 - HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. -- Lea Dow, President of Athena Allergy and co-owner of NoNickel, will be attending the 23rd annual American Contact Dermatitis Society meeting on March 15, 2012, in San Diego, California. This one day meeting entitled “Charting the Course” features experts in the field of dermatology and covers a variety of topics related to allergic contact dermatitis.
Athena Allergy will also be represented as one of the select exhibitors at this conference. Educating dermatologists, allergists, physicians, nurses and health care professionals about the benefits patients can derive from using Athena Allergy products is one of the missions of this organization. According to Ms. Dow, it is important for healthcare professionals to be able to provide avenues for nickel allergy patients to live a comfortable life. Athena Allergy offers an inexpensive but invaluable product, Nickel Solution, which allows users to detect nickel in metal and then protect the skin from that nickel. The company offers many accessories safe for the nickel allergic consumer to use on a daily basis such as guaranteed nickel free Nickel Smart belts, belt buckles, and a variety of nickel free jewelry. Individuals with nickel allergy suffer from extremely itchy and sometimes painful rashes. Reaching the physician community is an excellent way to provide much-needed reassurance to nickel allergy sufferers that their symptoms can be avoided.
Ms. Dow is excited about the opportunity to interact with leading dermatologists and allergists and to hear the latest news and trends in her field. She and her husband, co-owner Michael Dow, are passionate about sharing their knowledge with their customers. They readily admit they are not dermatologists, but with over forty-five years combined experience in the allergic contact dermatitis field, they offer beneficial strategies and tips to those suffering from nickel allergy. Participation in medical conferences such as this one provides additional knowledge that may be passed along through personal contact, educational articles on their websites or blogs, and patient information flyers and brochures. Ms. Dow is expecting that there will be information on medical advances that will improve the lifestyle of allergy sufferers and looks forward to sharing that information with her customers.
