Proposed Bill For Emergency Epinephrine In Schools « The Food Allergy Mom.

Legislation that would help put lifesaving medicine in the hands of school personnel and help protect millions of children in the U.S. with potentially life-threatening food allergies – as well as others with undiagnosed food allergies – will be introduced this week on Capitol Hill

 

 “This law could potentially save the life of an elementary school student whose parents didn’t know he or she had any food allergies or a high schooler whose reaction was so severe that he or she required a second dose of epinephrine but only had one auto-injector at school. When someone experiences anaphylaxis, every second counts,” said FAAN CEO Maria L. Acebal.
