Students allowed to self-carry and self-administer asthma medication with only a parental note

Governor Quinn signed new, RHA-sponsored legislation into effect that allows children to carry and administer their quick-relief asthma inhalers at school with strictly parental consent. Students now only need to submit note from a parent or guardian and a copy of their prescription having previously required physician consent. RHA sought to remove this barrier in order to improve compliance with students being able to carry their inhaler in school.
