Congratulations!  Your state has passed stock-epinephrine laws or regulations that permit an emergency supply of epinephrine auto-injectors to be used in a school. However, our job is not done yet. Each law or regulation must be implemented or put into action by a board or an agency.The agency or board will then issue administrative rules, guidelines or best practices explaining in detail how it intends to put the law into effect and what a mother, father, caregiver, physician, pharmacist or school nurse must do to comply with the law. AANMA is an active resource in these states assisting administrators in a seamless rollout of the stock-epinephrine laws.
