STOCK EPI IN VIRGINIA?!?!!

Hi guys,
This is Bre tt from the Northern Virginia Food Aller gy Group.

You know how AED machin es are now available in public plac es to help people in emergencies? W hy not Epinephrine? One of our group 's co-founders is working on a "sto ck epinephrine" law which would make epinephri ne available in public places, and s he needs our help. Do you ha ve a story we could share?

As backgrou nd, Virginia is one of the f ew states that does not have a sto ck epinephrine law. Maryland is debating a simil ar bill, after a father suddenly di ed in front of his children wh en he unknowingly ate an allergen at a publ ic venue. Having epinephrine on hand cou ld have saved his life. We're hopi ng to prevent such an episode he re. Thankfully we don't have a trage dy to motivate us, but we do ne ed your experiences to bring the iss ue to life.

How could stock epinephrine he lp you or your child? Please ema il Brett at [email protected]
