Pennsylvanians - TAKE ACTION on Self-Carry!!!
Help us protect Pennsylvania kids who have peanut allergy, vemom allergies, food allergies!

We are grateful to State Senator Jane Orie for sponsoring Senate Bill 731- a bill which allows food allergic children to carry epinephrine (EpiPen or Twinject) while they are at school--including to and from school.

Immediate access to Epinephrine is crucial for treating severe allergic reactions. (anaphylaxis)

You can help turn this bill into law by contacting your local State Senator and/or Senator James J. Rhoades, Chairman of the Education Committee.

Senator James J. Rhoades

Senate Box 203029
