Each month in 2019, the American Lung Association will spotlight the lifesaving importance of healthy air, focusing on different themes such as how air pollution harms health, who is at risk and ways to take action to protect our communities especially in regards to climate change. May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month so the theme for May is “Asthma, Allergies, and Climate Change”. Worsening air quality and longer, more potent allergy seasons due to climate change threatens everyone’s health, but those with asthma and allergies are at even greater risk.
Two webinars are scheduled, one for the general public and one for healthcare professionals
For more information about these webinars, resources, past and future themes, please visit the American Lung Association’s Healthy Air web page.
