Parents of kiddos with food allergy fear anaphylaxis and also that their kiddo won’t have epinephrine.
Have you or your kiddo ever forgotten epinephrine? Or left it somewhere that can damage it, like a hot car? Likely, the answer is yes.
So tune in to this episode in which Dr. Hoyt interviews food allergy college student turned entrepreneur Joey DiGangi. Joey shares his personal journey with food allergy, including his episode of anaphylaxis in a foreign country. Also, he discusses an idea that started in a college class and is now helping food allergy kiddos and adults.

Additional Show Notes
I have talked about a non-profit…
The non-profit is The Teal Schoolhouse, whose primary program is Code Ana. Code Ana equips schools for medical emergencies like anaphylaxis. Our primary program is the Code Ana School Program, which is a comprehensive approach to school-focused medical preparedness. This program guides schools through the process of creating a medical emergency response plan.
A medical emergency response plan is important for all kiddos and for adults at any school! Our primary goal is to share the School Program, and Code Ana’s Online Epinephrine Training Program helps support that goal. Through this program, you will educate yourself while you support this important mission! (BTW although Pam and I serve in leadership roles of Code Ana and The Teal Schoolhouse, our time/effort/work is completely voluntary). Does your kiddo’s school have Code Ana?
