LIFE HAPPENS. Be Prepared. ®

LIFE HAPPENS. Be Prepared. ®  is a patient/caregiver video series. We invite you to view the videos at

Through this unique series, we bring to life seven patient/caregiver stories that emphasize key aspects of managing potentially life-threatening (severe) allergies and a life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), such as preparedness and avoidance. Each story is educational, helping the broader community understand that whether school, work, travel or life happens, those at risk for anaphylaxis must always be prepared.

The videos reinforce that being prepared means having an anaphylaxis action plan to:
·         Avoid known allergens
·         Know what symptoms to watch for
·         Use an EpiPen® (epinephrine) Auto-Injector if anaphylaxis occurs
·         Get emergency medical help right away

As you know, the risk of anaphylaxis can be scary, but it is our hope that this collection of videos can help support those managing severe allergies in a meaningful way.

We hope you will find these videos valuable.
