Council to review food allergy resolution from 2015 House of Delegates

The Council on Health Care Quality and Population Health will review the 2015 House of Delegates Resolution 203: Food Allergies at its meeting Feb. 18 at Society headquarters in Madison.

The Council plans to study the impact and utilization of the current food allergy program—which allows schools to stock epinephrine autoinjectors and train school personnel in their use—and will determine whether more work needs to be done to ensure that schools are utilizing the program to its full extent. Several other policies, which are up for their five-year review, are also on the agenda.

In addition, the Council will receive updates on the Women’s Health and Gun Violence subgroups and the Opioid Task Force—all initiatives out of the Council’s previous meetings.

All Society members are welcome to attend the Council meeting at 1 p.m. An agenda and meeting materials are available in the members-only section of the Society website.* Members also may e-mail Casey Pieper in the Society’s Government and Legal Affairs Department or call her at 608.442.3843 for more information.
