Freebee Friday: EpiPen is Mightier than the Sword

Epipen2packThere is no greater tragedy in today’s schools than a child anaphylaxic shock brought on by a food allergy and the institution not having an Epi Pen on hand to inject a life-saving dose of epinephrine. The National Association of School Nurses has a lot of good advice for preventing and treating this, including having an EpiPen on hand. Bioridge Pharma makes the pens that automatically inject a dose of epinephrine and is giving them away to schools. Educational institutions can get four pens for free along with instructions, a training device so that the school’s nurse or principal is familiar with the pen when the time comes to use it. After that, the injection pens can be purchased for a discounted price of $112.10 each. Just download and send in the certification form.
