UPDATE: Wisconsin enacts law to protect students’ right to carry and use anaphylaxis medications in schools

In November 2011, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed into law the 2011 Wisconsin Act 85 which allows students to possess and use epinephrine auto-injectors while at school with the approval of their physician and guardian.  This is a huge step in protecting the health of students with allergies across Wisconsin. With this law, Wisconsin becomes the 49th state to ensure students’ right to self-carry and self-administer prescribed anaphylaxis medication. AAFA applauds the efforts made in Wisconsin and hopes that New York will soon pass similar legislation.
