Stock Epinephrine Advisory Committee

DSHS Stock Epinephrine Advisory Committee

List of Current Members

In response to Senate Bill 66, from the 84th Legislative Session, the Stock Epinephrine Advisory Committee (SEAC) was formed to examine and review the administration of epinephrine auto-injectors to a person experiencing an anaphylactic reaction on a school campus. The committee is tasked with advising the commissioner on:

  1. the storage and maintenance of epinephrine auto-injectors on school campuses,
  2. the training of school personnel and school volunteers on the administration of epinephrine auto-injectors, and
  3. a plan for trained school personnel or school volunteers to be on each school campus.  

During the 2017 Legislative Session, Senate Bill 1367 passed into law and allowed institutions of higher education to adopt and implement epinephrine auto-injector policies on their campuses (Texas Education Code, Chapter 51, Subchapter Y-1).
