Governor Deal signed into law State Bill 126 (SB126) which authorizes schools to stock levalbuterol/albuterol and provides immunity for trained staff to administer the lifesaving medication to a student believed in good faith be experiencing respiratory distress, regardless of whether the student has a prescription for albuterol/levalbuterol. This authorization and protections under the law will enhance the ability of school nurses and properly trained personnel to implement comprehensive protocols for responding to asthma emergencies while protecting all students experiencing respiratory distress in school settings. Announcement of the new law was covered by local CBS news affiliate featuring Jon Ramsey and Dr. Traci Bridges who authored the bill.

Community Health Status Indicators 2015 (CHSI 2015) is an interactive Web application that produces health profiles for all 3,143 counties in the United States. Each profile includes key indicators of health outcomes, which describe the population health status of a county and factors that have the potential to influence health outcomes, such as social factors and the physical environment. CHSI 2015 includes new and enhanced features compared to earlier versions of the tool, including a feature that allows users to compare the value of each indicator with those of demographically similar counties, as well as to the U.S. as a whole, and a new summary comparison report which provides an "at a glance" view of how one county compares with its peers. Check out CHSI 2015 to see your county's health profile!
