Modern Family Star, Julie Bowen, Talks About Anaphylaxis

Family Circle shares a Q&A with actress Julie Bowen who recently has been spreading awareness about anaphylaxis, a life-threatening type of allergic reaction.


Julie Bowen's son is allergic to peanuts, walnuts and bees, and has partnered with Mylan Specialty to raise awareness through the Get Schooled in Anaphylaxis initiative.


"As my son gets older, I can’t be with him all the time, protecting him. So, I need to know that when I can’t be with him, the people watching over him at school or in our community know how to help him avoid his allergic triggers, understand what anaphylaxis is, what it looks like, and how to respond when it occurs. We all have a role to play in helping to create a safe environment for kids."
