Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening emergency that requires prompt action. Recently, through the advocacy efforts of local A/I physicians, patients, parents, legislators and lay organizations, the state of Delaware amended its current law to allow ease of access of epinephrine in school for the treatment of life threatening allergic reactions. In addition, North Carolina recently passed legislation that would require epinephrine in every school. This is an exciting development for the citizens of Delaware and North Carolina and a testament to local grass-roots advocacy.
