Help 4 Your School

I have previously shared the news about Mylan Specialty extending the program EpiPen4 Schools (read here if you missed it). I have just received some updated information and I felt it was important to share, especially with so many states (thankfully!) requiring epinephrine in all of their schools. Although the laws are being passed, there are still steps that must be taken to make sure that the much -needed epinephrine actually gets to the schools to keep everyone safe. Also just as important is to make sure everyone understands how to administer it and the specific symptoms to watch for to treat an allergic reaction  The extra help, information and support that Mylan Specialty is continuing to give is just the thing that we can all use to get our teachers and administration trained, stocked and ready to go.

For those schools that qualify for the EpiPen4Schools program, the following is now available to you~

  • An overview about anaphylaxis featuring Dr. Ruchi Gupta which will show step-by-step demonstration of how to use an EpiPen auto-injector 
  • (4) EpiPen or EpiPen Jr. auto injectors
  • EpiPen training device
  • "Anaphylaxis: Know it. See it. Treat it training video
  • An EpiLocker
  • EpiPen replenishment offer
  • Easy, online order processing

A gentle reminder that schools that wish to utilize this program must submit a valid prescription in order to qualify for this program. Please make sure you remind your school administrators to have this done in order to have everything supplied in a timely manner. After all, the more time that is wasted is also more time that could chance not being prepared for an allergic reaction.

Who's ready to become even more prepared? For more information, please visit the website at  https://www.epipen4schools.com and help your school get all of the supplies that they need.

A special thank you to Mylan Specialty for continuing to support our food allergy community, our families and now even the families that may need support in the future. #MylanNews
