At Mylan, delivering better health for a better West Virginia isn’t our job.
It’s our mission.

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

Epinephrine is the only first-line treatment for anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. 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 2 times in West Virginia in the school setting.
Over the past five years, Mylan has provided 5,466 free epinephrine auto-injectors to 471 schools in West Virginia, ~52% of the state’s schools.
