School Solutions: Spread the word and never assume everyone knows about this program: Free EpiPens® 4 Schools sponsored by Mylan, the makers of the EpiPen® epinephrine auto-injector. I thought all of the schools in my state knew of this program and I recently learned they had not! So, please share this information since most school districts these days can use the extra financial support!
Details. Basically, this program offers four free EpiPen® or EpiPen®Jr to qualifying public or private schools elementary, middle or high schools to. Note: the schools need to have a prescription for the EpiPen®. Visit the website for details:Free EpiPens® 4 Schools to find videos, EpiLockers (a bright yellow container to store stock epinephrine) and downloads.

Disclaimer: Mylan® did not pay me or ask me to write this post. I personally want all qualifying schools to take advantage of the Free EpiPens® 4 Schools program. It saved a life (actually several) here in Nevada and I hope it will save lives across the US.
