Florida's New School Allergy Policy
It's a bright day in the Sunshine State!
Kudos to all involved in a groundbreaking amendment to Florida's school allergy management protocols. Prior to this amendment, Florida school personnel could treat students who were already diagnosed with food allergies but not those suffering anaphylaxis for the first time. The current amendment allows these children to be treated as well. The amendment was endorsed by the Florida Medical Association, various Florida medical societies, patient advocacy groups, and parent groups. Auto-injector manufactures, Mylan and Sanofi-Aventis will distribute devices to every public and private school in the state.
What is your state's position on the matter? Find out, we can make a difference!
