Food allergies, including those at risk of anaphylaxis, are on the rise and food allergy professionals are making it easier for anyone to obtain first aid supplies and training in case of an anaphylactic emergency.

Epi Pen First Aid KitCurrently, at least four distributors offer emergency epinephrine auto-injectors, one of them being a generic brand.  To make epinephrine more affordable to the average consumer, most of these distributors are offering “$0 co-pay” discount coupons available for download from their websites, allowing patients to receive up to $100 off of their co-pay costs for each auto-injector 2 pack  which makes auto-injectors free for some patients.

In addition to making epinephrine more readily available to food allergy patients, recent legislation is making it more common for schools to stock epinephrine for any child who needs it.

Finally, a recently released online training course makes it possible for anyone from parents to school administrators or large corporations to receive comprehensive first aid training on what to do in case of an anaphylactic emergency.  You can take the course for free, today.
