National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month
May 1 – May 31 CDT
National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month is observed each year in May, and sponsored by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. May is a peak season for asthma and allergy sufferers, and a perfect time to educate others about these diseases.
Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month is a time to volunteer with organizations to help out with awareness events. There are also several things you can do to raise awareness on your own, including fundraising, writing to your local representatives about policies that support people with these conditions and their health, join a related Facebook group, and wear a gray ribbon for asthma or a teal ribbon for allergies.
