Are children who have asthma allowed to take their meds when they go to school?
Now they are, but it's complicated. It wasn't until 2010 that the last of the 50 states (North Dakota) enacted legislation for what's sometimes referred to as "self-carry" laws, according to the Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics. But laws vary from state to state, some requiring the child to have a letter from a doctor. (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a roundup of some legislation by state.)
