The surveys that engineer developers at Sanofi got back showed a terrifying (and deadly) habit; two-thirds of patients and caregivers do not carry an Epi-Pen (epinephrine auto-injector) as recommended by their doctors. Half of caregivers are afraid others caring for their child won't know how to use it. (For me, I was always so scared to stab myself with the needle so I risked my life a few times waiting to get to the hospital. Never again.)

I don't know about you, but the nerd in me can't wait to watch this baby in action! Hopefully someone from the company will demonstrate it on YouTube. ;)
UPDATE: Recently read an interesting and inspiring article about this device's creation...check it out =) It def made me smile.
So many happy miracles happening this week in the food allergy community, what's next!?
