On the heels of Sabrina’s Law in Ontario, Connecticut recently became the first U.S. state to legislate food allergy programs in its schools. In June, the state passed a law that requires the departments of education and public health to establish rules by January 1 for managing students with life-threatening allergies.

These rules must include provisions that: teachers be trained about life-threatening allergies, in the use of the EpiPen and in emergency procedures for anaphylaxis. The schools also will need to develop individual "action plans" for each student with serious allergies. Schools must have the policies in place by July 2006.


Full story.
