Hi all,
I'm probably the only person that didn't know this but just in case there are others:

EpiPen Canada will send out a free training DVD and trainer epipen. The info is on their website.

We sent in the request a couple of weeks ago and are still waiting. Why oh why did our paediatrician and pharmacist neglect to tell us this 3 years ago. I even asked at the pharmacy earlier this summer and they had no idea how to get a trainer. Grrr.

The summer A.L. (and I have to double check but I think the fall issue also ) advertised the free trainer. The info. was included on the epipen ad. page and if you didn't read the add you would have missed it.
Glad you found out in time to receive a free one. :D
