"I have more peace of mind knowing my son has his MedicAlert bracelet. I realize that if his blood glucose level ever drops suddenly when I am not with him, others will instantly be able to identify his condition." Audrey – Kingston, ON

"With allergies and asthma rates on the rise, it’s very difficult to keep track of every student’s health needs. MedicAlert provides valuable information that helps us monitor any changes in the student body that we have not been made aware of, and allows us to react rapidly should an emergency situation arise. No Child Without® allows parents to feel safer while their children are in the care of others throughout the school day and it makes our jobs easier - with no cost to our school or the school board."

First Responder
"Peanut allergies are by far the most common and have received a lot of attention recently," states Dr. Milton Gold, Associate Professor, University of Toronto, Hospital for Sick Children, Division of Immunology-Allergy. Other problem foods include milk, eggs, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish and various nuts.
"Wearing a MedicAlert bracelet is critical in helping health care professionals make an accurate diagnosis," says Dr. Gold. "Sometimes children eat a snack while on the playground, not realizing its contents, and have an allergic reaction. If they are wearing a MedicAlert bracelet, first responders and health care professionals will immediately know about their allergy or other medical conditions such as asthma, epilepsy and diabetes. If more medical or emergency contact information is needed, MedicAlert also has an emergency hotline." Dr. Milton Gold – Associate Professor,
