Kansas – Stock Epinephrine Law
Congratulations! Kansas has an act in place for using epinephrine in emergency situations.
An act concerning epinephrine; relating to the administration thereof; authorizing the maintenance of epinephrine kits.
However, our job is not done yet. Each law or regulation must be implemented or put into action by a board or an agency.
Allergy & Asthma Network supports stock epinephrine implementation in schools and provides education and resources to support a seamless rollout. For more information, visit:

Sample ACE Team Activity:
On March 29, 2013, Dr. Wald’s practice, Kansas City Allergy and Asthma Associates, shared a story about egg allergies, just in time for Easter: Eggs are not only a common baking ingredient, but a food that is in several Easter dishes. While eggs can be difficult to substitute, there are some replacements sold in stores. Some even say mashed avocado, moistened bread crumbs and rolled oats can work in recipes.
