South Carolina – Stock Epinephrine Law
Congratulations! On June 7, 2013, South Carolina’s Governor signed Safe Access to Vital Epinephrine (SAVE) into law.
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 Activities:
In August 2014, Dr. Dietrich’s team provided Charleston Christian School in Charleston, SC, with an anaphylaxis education presentation. Topics included food and venom allergies as well as how to use an epinephrine auto-injector.
Dr. Amrol delivered an ACE presentation to 75 medical students and residents and educated them about food allergy and the importance of patient education and epinephrine availability.
