But that’s something a school nurse or other health care provider could lose their license over. Now, some states are passing legislation to make it easier for anyone to use any one’s rescue glucagon.

We talk to Georgia State Rep. Doug Stoner and his wife, Trip Stoner, a long-time diabetes advocate who lives with type 1 about what they were able to get passed in their state, what you can do to take action in yours, and what they’re planning next to help people with diabetes.
