The Asthma and Allergy Foundation (AAFA) is working with like-minded groups and community members to find the best way to get epinephrine auto-injectors stocked on airplanes in the United States.
Today, our government affairs representative, Mark Vieth, attended a Senate meeting on epinephrine auto-injectors on airplanes. This is a policy priority for AAFA and its food allergy division, Kids With Food Allergies.
