Mylan was founded in 1961 in White Sulphur Springs. In 1965, the company
relocated to Morgantown, where its operations in the state remain based. The
company’s impact on West Virginia today is significant and wide-ranging, as
measured by its effect on the state’s total gross domestic product; the number of jobs
supported; and influence on local healthcare, education and charitable institutions.

Mylan's School
Access Program - WV

Over the past five years, Mylan has provided 5,866 free epinephrine auto-injectors to 495 schools in West Virginia, ~54% of the state’s schools.

Several years ago, we recognized that epinephrine auto-injectors needed to be as accessible as defibrillators are in public spaces. So Mylan advocated for legislation to permit “undesignated” epinephrine auto-injectors in schools – meaning a prescription could be in a school’s name rather than in a child’s name and any individual experiencing an anaphylactic emergency would have access to the epinephrine auto-injectors. Today, 48 states have adopted such laws, and Mylan has donated nearly 1 million epinephrine auto-injectors to more than 73,000 schools around the country through the school access program.

Since the program began, epinephrine auto-injectors provided through the program have been used at least 4 times in West Virginia in the school setting.
