CDC offers toolkit for Asthma Awareness Month

Asthma is a disease that affects the lungs of more than 25 million people in the United States, including 1 in 11 children. It causes 3 in 5 people living with asthma to limit their physical activity or miss days at school and work. Asthma is also expensive, costing the nation $56 billion each year. On World Asthma Day May 6 and throughout the month, people with asthma and organizations dedicated to asthma control and education join together to increase awareness about asthma and improve the lives of all people with asthma.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has produced an Asthma Awareness Toolkit that includes key messages, videos and audio podcasts, sample social media and a personal asthma action plan builder.
