MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- We've covered the COVID-19 risks to kids heading back to in-person learning classes this fall pretty extensively.

But there's an age old danger that parents, students and teachers can't forget about- severe allergies.

Kelly Barlow is a registered nurse in Wisconsin who specializes in school, community and public health.

She joins CBS 58 this morning, Aug. 17 to discuss potentially life-saving strategies for the upcoming school year to help make classrooms safer for children living with life threatening allergies.

She also discusses the importance of developing an allergic emergency plan that considers the new school environment, as well as educate about an epinephrine auto-injector designed to be easy to carry and easy to use.
