Kaléo Announces Epinephrine Donation Program for Public Elementary Schools

Kaléo, maker of the AUVI-Q® epinephrine auto-injector, has started a charitable product donation program for elementary schools. The program, called “Q Your School,” will provide up to four AUVI-Q® cartons to each elementary school in the U.S. every year to help them be prepared for severe allergic reactions.
The Airline Passengers’ Bill of Rights was introduced to the U.S. Senate on June 26, 2017, and includes protections for airline passengers with disabilities (such as asthma or food allergies). For the first time, airlines could be held accountable for not accommodating disabilities. If this bill passes, it could make flying safer for those with food allergies. Use our helpful Action Alert tool to send a message to your senators asking them to pass the Airline Passengers’ Bill of Rights.
