May is Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, and it’s right around the corner. Why not schedule a little time to share your expertise with your community? The College’s updated Asthma and Allergy Awareness Toolkit makes it easy. Use the Toolkit’s resources for:
- Local events and health fairs are coming back. Health fairs are a great opportunity to offer free asthma screenings. Check local YMCAs or hospitals for upcoming health fair dates. Our updated Asthma Screening Event Planning Guide offers ideas and resources to plan and host an asthma screening.
- Check with your library or local hospital for opportunities to give a talk to the public. Use our patient-friendly PowerPoint presentation for a virtual or in-person talk.
- Your waiting room is a great place to capture your patients’ attention. The College has dozens of patient videos on our YouTube channel. College videos share patients’ real-life experiences with eczema, asthma and chronic rhinosinusitis.
- Download our ready-made articles. These can be used to pitch story ideas to your local newspaper or for your practice newsletter.
- From your practice website, link to our informative web content about asthma, all types of allergies, treatments and management.
- Send a note to primary care NPs and PAs in your community in observance of Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, sharing information tailored to them.
Don’t forget social media! Follow the College on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, and “Like,” “Retweet” or “Share” our Awareness Month content during May. Join the conversation by using the hashtags #AllergyAndAsthma, #IAmAnAllergist, and #FindRelief.
May is the perfect time to promote your practice and help your community find relief! The Asthma and Allergy Awareness Toolkit is supported by AstraZeneca.
