Memo to Albany: We’re Baaack!
With an attitude of never giving up when it comes to anaphylaxis, epinephrine and New York State schools, the Allergy Advocacy Association will participate in a legislative action event in Albany scheduled for TUESDAY, MAY 6TH. The overall theme will be:
“LIFE-THREATENING ALLERGIES REQUIRE LIFE-SAVING EPINEPHRINE!”
We will set up our exhibit booth in the concourse early in the day and pass out flyers to any passers-by. There will be a press conference at 11:30am to support bill #NYS A0779 the so-called ‘nurse authorized stock epi’ bill sponsored by Assemblyman Tom Abinanti. During the afternoon we will schedule meetings with as many lawmakers as possible to discuss all bills currently pending in the legislature intended to help protect the lives of children afflicted with life-threatening allergies. We hope this will be the year to finally get legislation passed to improve access to epinephrine in all school districts large or small, rural or urban.
