Even though more than 65 million people are affected by asthma and allergies, many people still don’t understand what it’s like to live with these conditions. That’s why the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has declared May to be “National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.”

All month long, we will be raising awareness about asthma and allergies. We invite you to join us for 31 days of action! This year’s theme is about helping people increase confidence when using asthma and allergy medicines, including inhalers and injections.

We have many ways that you can take action during May or as your schedule allows. Watch our blog and social channels throughout the month for Twitter chats, free downloadable handouts, educational information, ways to advocate, and more.

Will you join us for 31 days of action to raise asthma and allergy awareness? Here are just a few ways you can participate:


Asthma and Allergy Facts to Share

During May, you can raise awareness about the impact of asthma and allergies. Download and share our quick facts handouts on asthma and allergies. Share individual facts from these handouts on your social media channels or print and give the handout to people who would like to know more. Sometimes seeing the facts can help people better understand the impact asthma and allergies can have.
