Allergy Emergency Training for Childcare Professionals

Faculty member Dr. Chase Schuler demonstrated epinephrine auto-injectors and helped teachers practice on oranges.

Dr. Chase Schuler visited Temple Beth El Early Childhood Center in Bloomfield Hills in late August to provide important training and education to the center's preschool professionals. Dr. Schuler demonstrated the use of two different types of epinephrine auto-injectors and the preschool teachers were able to practice using the devices on oranges. As prevalent as allergies have become, it is essential that educators and child care providers are trained to respond to a serious food allergic reaction.
