MedicAlert and the Food Allergy Initiative

April 11, 2011 at 7:57 am Leave a comment

I follow Food Allergy Initiative on Facebook and came across something that might interest you. MedicAlert is a 24 hour assistance for those with serious medical conditions. The person with the health condition (or in this case, a food allergy) wears a MedicAlert bracelet that has an emergency phone number on it, as well as, identifies the person so that in case of an emergency medics will have immediate access to the person’s medical records, etc. The following statement was taken off their website:

The Food Allergy Initiative (FAI) and MedicAlert Foundation are proud of their ongoing partnership to provide free enrollment for low-income children and adults who suffer from food allergies. Members select a MedicAlert medical ID, which is engraved with their member number and our 24-hour emergency response number. This information saves lives by giving emergency medical personnel immediate access to the member’s medical records. This offer of free MedicAlert membership to needy individuals is made possible by a generous grant provided by the Food Allergy Initiative on behalf of an anonymous donor.

This is worth checking into and passing the info along to anyone you know that might benefit from this. What a great partnership!
