May is Asthma Awareness Month
Raising Awareness About Asthma
Today, more than 25 million people in America have asthma—including more than 7 million kids. Asthma is the third leading cause of hospitalization among children under the age of 15 and is a leading cause of school absences.
That's why this May—Asthma Awareness Month—the American Lung Association has set out to bring greater awareness of this disease. We're helping to make sure people with asthma have access to the information and resources they need to manage their asthma to live active, healthy lives.
Please visit LUNG.ORG for available tools & resources to help better inform people with astma & their loved ones, and find out how you can help make programs and resources like these available for those with lung disease, such as asthma.
