AMAX4 – Every second counts

Introducing AMAX4: Saving Lives, One Breath at a Time

Join us for an inspiring presentation by Dr. Ben McKenzie as he unveils AMAX4, a groundbreaking initiative born out of tragedy and fuelled by a passion to prevent needless loss. In 2022, the McKenzie family’s world was shattered by the devastating loss of their beloved son, Max, to anaphylaxis-related asthma. Determined to turn their grief into action, they embarked on a mission to spare others from the same heartbreak.

AMAX4 is more than just an initiative—it’s a beacon of hope for families everywhere. Through education, advocacy, and cutting-edge research, Dr. McKenzie is leading the charge to raise awareness and empower communities to recognize, respond to, and prevent anaphylaxis and asthma-related fatalities.
