Treating Peanut Allergy

North Carolina legislators are considering a bill that would require that schools have a minimum of two EpiPens and people trained to use them.  An EpiPen is an epinephrine auto-injector used for severe allergic reactions. In a recent interview with WRAL-TV, Dr. Edwin Kim, spoke about the importance of kids having access to appropriate treatment.  Dr. Kim is part of research team that is studying immunotherapies for children with peanut allergies.
