Help your community breathe easy.
The College’s Nationwide Asthma Screening Program, supported by Teva Specialty, is an important public service campaign to help people across the country breathe easier. The program identifies suspected asthma, nasal allergy and EIB sufferers and refers them to allergists for diagnosis and treatment. Nearly 150,000 adults and children have been screened.
By conducting an asthma screening program in your community, you play an important part in the College’s nationwide effort to raise awareness about asthma, allergies and EIB and the role allergists play in treatment of these diseases.
To participate in NASP, here’s what you have to do:
1. Join! Let us know you are interested.
2. Plan! To get started, check out our coordinator's manual. Then, once you have secured a location and time for your screening, send in the location registration form. If the screening is open to the public, we'll add it to the website where people can find it easily.
3. Print! We’ll send you a link to an electronic toolkit packed with all the materials you need to make your screening a success. You can customize and print, in-house, registration forms, patient education materials, children's activity sheets and more. All you need to bring is your own spirometry equipment.
A representative from Teva will deliver a kit of promotional banners to your office, and if you want, they can provide you with printed materials for your screening as well as help you plan and execute your screening. The only thing you need to bring is your own spirometry equipment.
