Allergy, Asthma, and Anaphylaxis at School: Are Your Patients at Risk?

Pediatric Asthma & Anaphylaxis

Charlotte Collins, J.D., Senior Vice President, Policy and Programs, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America talks about the risk of allergy, asthma, and anaphylaxis at school. Many children will have their first allergic reaction or asthma attack at school, triggered by mold, pests, and exercise. Fortunately, many of these cases can be treated with proper administration of an epinephrine auto-injector, which Collins urges all schools to have on-site.
