The Dillon Mueller Memorial Fund received the Honorable Mention Award for Community Enhancment at the Progress Lakeshore’s award breakfast.
The Do It for Dillon! Campaign advocates for state legislatures across the country to update their state laws to pass Dillon’s Law, which would allow trained individuals to carry epinephrine and administer to someone in need. In June 2023n Dillon’s Law will be introduced to Congress in hopes that it becomes national law. The Do It for Dillon Anaphylaxis Training Program is a state-approved course administered throughout allowed states. The Dillon Mueller Memorial Fund offers these courses directly and supports those who would like to provide these courses. They have trained over 3,000 people in WI on epinephrine administration, and ten lives have been saved in the community.
