EpiPen Bill Through Committee

EpiPen Bill Through Committee
Posted Thursday, April 3rd 2014 @ 6pm  by KFBK News

A bill that would increase the number of EpiPens being available in California schools is moving forward.  

The state Senate Education Committee advanced the bill following testimony from several supporters.  

EpiPens are devices used like a needle to give a shot of adrenaline to people that are going through anaphylatic shock.  

The bill would require school districts to give EpiPens to trained personnel to provide emergency medical aid to anyone suffering from a severe allergic reaction.
