Asthma Awareness Month

The American Lung Association is the trusted champion in improving lung health and preventing lung disease.  As May begins Asthma Awareness Month please visit our site to learn more about our asthma based programs, research and education. https://www.lung.org/lung-health-diseases/lung-disease-lookup/asthma

In New Jersey, over 600,000 adults (9.0%) and 167,000 children (8.7%) are estimated to have asthma currently. The number of women with asthma is almost double the number of men with asthma; however, asthma occurs more frequently in boys than girls.  Over 10.1 million school days are missed across the United States each year making it the #1 reason students are absent.

Asthma and other lung related illness is directly impacted by the air we breathe.  Five in ten americans lives somewhere in this country with poor air quality.  If you would like to learn more about New Jersey’s air quality, please visit http://www.stateoftheair.org/
