Advocacy in Action
AAFA-STL will be working diligently to advocate for Missouri House Bill 1784 & Senate Bill 677, which establishes requirements for certain public entities to keep a stock of epinephrine auto-injectors (EpiPens) for emergency administration. Also, for those in the food service industry (or other interested groups), AAFA-STL is proud to offer the suite of AllerTrainâ„¢ accredited food allergen and gluten-free training courses.  Check out more on our website or contact Reagan Nelson, certified AllerTrainâ„¢ Master Trainer.
