Asthma and Allergy Awareness: Learn More

Allergic diseases and asthma are chronic; that is, they can affect you for the rest of your life. And the effects of these illnesses are far-reaching: more than 17 million Americans have asthma, while more than 50 million suffer from allergies. The good news is that both asthma and allergies can be managed through awareness of the "triggers" that cause the onset of asthma and allergy symptoms, and through awareness of what environmental factors may put you at a greater risk of developing these diseases.

A child's environment, where he or she plays and learns, is key to preventing the symptoms of asthma and allergies. The following resources focus on children living with asthma and allergies, and how they can get involved.
