Asthma and Allergy Month has long been celebrated in the month of May. With World Asthma Day on May 4 celebrated globallly and an annual legislative event the next day on Capitol Hill, asthma is on the minds of decision makers and health care givers around the world.

Lung Days in May

Do It

  • Watch for a press release in your local papers—written by AARC and sent out through your state society. It will be quoting AARC members in your community on asthma topics.
  • Hold your Health Fairs. Respiratory therapists have long been active in their communities during May. World Asthma Day is a great day for this.
  • Get involved with Peak Performance. It can make a difference in your community.

Many asthma resources exist. Your job it to keep on top of them all. But don’t worry; the AARC is here to help.
