Anaphylaxis: Be Aware, Prepared and Ready to Respond
Anaphylaxis is a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction resulting from exposure to allergens. Food allergies are the most common cause of anaphylaxis.
A three-part video series from the National PTA is designed to help create a safer learning environment for students with severe allergies. The programs are designed to:
- Empower parents to partner with schools on education and emergency response.
- Inform parents on how to prepare kids with severe allergies for school.
- Educate parents of kids without severe allergies on anaphylaxis risks in school.
