Food allergies are a big deal!

I wrote an article for Kevin, MD and he was gracious enough to post it.  Thanks Kevin!

The National Association of School Nurses (www.nasn.org) advocates for a nurse in every school, especially elementary. This issue is a big part of that reason. The teacher did the right thing, of course. In our school district , we have a standing physican order for epinephrine for ANY child who exhibits s/s of anaphyaxis, not just the children who have parents who can afford extra epi-pens for school.We have a nurse in every school. This is not the standard for most school settings.

Hi Gina,

Just to say, I was so relieved to find a sympathetic view to peanut allergy sufferers (of which I am one myself), that I decided to write a post about the subject on my own blog. I thought you might like to read it.
