I didn't quite catch the whole segment, but on The Oprah Winfrey show today she had an ER doctor as a guest who dicussed handling medical emergencies. In addition to talking about other emergencies, he spent a few minutes on peanut allergies and the use of the epi-pen (he had an epi-pen with him and briefly demonstated how to use it)! It was nice to see the peanut allergy topic taken seriously on a popular show and getting the exposure.
