Thanks to our food allergy shining star, Assemblywoman Debbie Smith (Nevada), I will be providing testimony this morning for the Nevada Legislative Committee on Health Care regarding epinephrine in schools. I will report how it goes in tomorrow’s blog, but I’m thrilled to see our health care committee interested and welcoming a parent advocate to speak honestly about the needs of my children and the children attending school in Nevada.
Send good thoughts, prayers and good joo-joo that this committee will “hear and understand” everyone presenting. I will keep you posted of how the meeting was and what our next steps will be to help ensure epinephrine in the schools of Nevada.
Please note: when I say we, I mean we…you and me!
Happy Tuesday and stay cool!-Caroline
UPDATE 10:36AM: Oh dear! I almost cried. I forgot how hard it is to share publicly my fear if my children dying from a food allergic reaction.
I felt good and balanced sharing our parent perspective. Mylan was here as well as Carson City and Clark county school districts sharing good concerns.
I love Nevada! Heading home now!!
