Health and Wellness– February - New Law on EpiPens

Beginning January 1, 2015, all school districts are required to stock EpiPens at all school sites.  On January 13, the Marin County Nurses Organization (MSNO) hosted a presentation by Dr. Gandhe on recognizing the symptoms of an allergic reaction/anaphylaxis and when to administer the EpiPen.  The presentation was videotaped for school nurses for their use to support school staff training in their districts on how to use EpiPen for students and staff with symptoms of severe allergic reaction to food, sting or medication.
