With the rise in reported food allergies among students in the last 15 years, it is crucial that policymakers understand how to best prepare school personnel to deal with related health emergencies. NASBE is helping state boards of education as they develop student health policies regarding anaphylaxis and epinephrine access and use. Resources include state policy handbooks, policy updates, and webinars.
