News from Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America newsletter

I’m glad to see this. It’s a new site from AAFA.  But again, as usual, I question how many people will actually see the site?I know about it because I get emails/newsletters from AAFA. Someone without asthma or allergies probably doesn’t. And people without asthma or allergies need to know about dangers of allergies and asthma.

Basics from the site:

Asthma basics

Asthma is a chronic disease — that means, once you have it, you’ll most likely have it for life. It’s not your fault.

Asthma affects the airways of the lungs and causes them to become swollen and irritated. Asthma cannot be cured, but it can be treated. That’s important. If asthma is not managed, symptoms can worsen and lead to limitations on your activities, missed days of work, and future asthma episodes — even if your asthma is mild.

And still, there needs to be a way to get asthma awareness to college campuses. And May is Asthma and Allergy Awareness month. I’ll have to keep up with that. I’m not sure it’s worth trying to get an “event” scheduled on my campus since May is finals and end of semester and graduate and omg for many! Wish I was graduating!
