The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) hosted a Twitter chat on asthma health on May 3, 2021. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) and David Stukus, MD, associate professor and Director of the Food Allergy Treatment Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, joined us to answer common questions about managing asthma, asthma treatment guidelines, and COVID-19 vaccines.

Below are some highlights from the chat. To see more, search for the hashtag #AsthmaHealth on Twitter.
