ROC the Day-Welcomes the Allergy Advocacy Association
November, 2013 Newsletter
In this season of giving thanks, we are so grateful to have your interest and support in our Allergy Advocacy Association. With the new federal law passed by the U.S. Congress and Senate to encourage schools to stock epinephrine for use on any student in an emergency, we now have greater hope for the future in keeping both children and adults safe in schools.
But we will not rest on our laurels! We plan to continue our efforts on the state level. Our association has the following legislative goals: to codify into law existing regulations allowing students with prescriptions to carry epinephrine throughout the school day; to enact a law authorizing the stocking of epinephrine in all New York state schools; and to require training in the use of the epinephrine auto-injector (EAI) device for all newly certified teachers.
We also hope to fund various initiatives to educate others on the dangers of anaphylaxis through our program of awareness, alertness and action. For this we need your help. Will you join us on ROC the Day! December 11th, with a donation of any amount? See all the details here.
