Get Ready for National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month!

Every year, we declare May to be National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month! We dedicate this month to educating others about what it's like to live with asthma and allergies. When others understand, they can be more supportive about creating safer environments.

Many people don’t know:
  • 10 people die every day from asthma
  • 1 in 13 children has a food allergy
  • Emergency room visits due to anaphylaxis have risen 150 percent
Throughout the month, we will share information on our blog and social media, host virtual awareness events and more. Learn how you can get involved.

May 13-19 Is Food Allergy Awareness Week

When others don't take food allergies seriously, it's often because they don't understand the challenges of finding safe food and preventing reactions. During Food Allergy Awareness Week, share information to help others understand. We will also be hosting our annual #FacesOfFoodAllergies photo sharing contest. We will continue to add to our shareable food allergy awareness tools and resources all month.

Shop for Awareness Gear

Let our awareness gear start the conversation about asthma or food allergies. You can order "Asthma Warrior" and "Food Allergy Warrior" T-shirts, as well as teal silicone bracelets and more from our online store. Order by April 18 so you can have them for National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. 

World Asthma Day Is May 1

May 1 is World Asthma Day. On this day, we will release our Asthma Capitals report that ranks the most challenging cities to live in if you have asthma. These are the cities that have the highest prevalence of asthma, emergency room visits and deaths due to asthma.
Stay Up to Date
All month, we’ll be sharing information to raise asthma and allergy awareness. Watch our blogs and our social media accounts for helpful news, tips and information you can share.
