Serving our community is a top priority at the Hoyt Institute of Food Allergy.
Dr. Alice Hoyt is a firm believer that teamwork makes the dream work, which is why she donates much of her professional time to serving her community. She shares her expertise in food allergy, anaphylaxis, and school medical-emergency preparedness with schools and childcare centers in Louisiana and across the country.
The Hoyt Institute of Food Allergy often partners with Code Ana, a non-profit program that equips schools for medical emergencies. Dr. Hoyt is the chief volunteer physician for this organization, which she founded in 2017. Both leaders in anaphylaxis education, Code Ana and Dr. Hoyt are especially enthusiastic about the EpiReady program, which supports schools and early childcare centers in obtaining stock epinephrine. Stock epinephrine is epinephrine in the form of an auto-injector that is prescribed to an entity.
As a volunteer service to her community, Dr. Hoyt has prescribed hundreds of stock epinephrine auto-injectors to schools and early childcare centers.
