May Is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month
Each year, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America declares May to be "National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month." It's a peak season for asthma and allergy sufferers, and a perfect time to educate your family, friends, co-workers and others about these diseases. There is no cure for asthma and allergies, and many deaths are preventable with proper treatment and care. Ten people a day die from asthma.
Asthma affects more than 24.5 million Americans. More than 6 million children under the age of 18 suffer from asthma. More than 50 million Americans have all types of allergies – pollen, skin, latex and more. Please join us in raising awareness for these common diseases. Use your medical insurance benefits to treat your itchy & watery eyes. Please speak with an associate to determine your eligibility.
