No ifs, ands, or NUTS!

Breaking news: The White House Has Gone Nutty!!

This is not a political jab at our leader, but rather a gracious shout out to our President for recognizing the importance of epinephrine in our schools.

On November 13, 2013, President Obama announced that his daughter, Malia, has a severe peanut allergy.  That same day, he signed the “School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act”.  This bill allows for schools to maintain a stock of epinephrine injectors to be administered by trained staff.  This bill can provide back-up injectors for those who have been diagnosed with a severe allergy.  More importantly, this epinephrine stock could be life-saving for someone who suffers a reaction to an undiagnosed allergy. 

Thank you, Mr. President, for helping to raise awareness for peanut allergies.

Keep out of the nut house!
