Get Asthma Aware

More than 25 million individuals live daily with asthma. Of those, about 7 million are children.

World Asthma Day—May 6, 2014—serves as a reminder that if you or someone you know has asthma, it is imperative that you take an active role in the long-term care—including the creation of an Asthma Action Plan—necessary to successfully control this chronic lung disease.

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) are issuing a nationwide call to action: Make a commitment to being an active partner in your or your loved one’s care. Partner with a medical professional to develop an asthma action plan that will help the affected person know when and how to control his or her asthma and help identify asthma triggers and manage the disease if asthma symptoms worsen.

By pledging your commitment, you will automatically send a message to your followers at 1:00 PM EST on Tuesday, May 6, and show your support for raising asthma awareness.

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health, provides global leadership for a research, training, and education program to promote the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, and blood diseases and enhance the health of all individuals so that they can live longer and more fulfilling lives.

The NHLBI’s education programs include the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP), which was initiated in March 1989 to address the growing problem of asthma in the United States. The NAEPP is administered and coordinated by the NHLBI and works with intermediaries including major medical associations, voluntary health organizations, and community programs to educate patients, health professionals, and the public. The ultimate goal of the NAEPP is to enhance the quality of life for patients with asthma and decrease asthma-related morbidity and mortality.
