AANMA Advocates Asthma Awareness in Times Square!
Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA) and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) take on asthma and allergies in Times Square! We’re telling the story on the CBS Super Screen at 42nd Street: While we don’t look so different on the outside, we have serious health issues that impact every aspect of our lives.
New York City has some of the most troubling asthma and allergy statistics in the country, but ours is a global problem. What better place to reach the masses with good news and real help than Times Square? It’s where you’ll see people of all nations bustling shoulder-to-shoulder through their day, never knowing that 1 out of every 4 people around them have one or both conditions.
In the space of 15 seconds, once every hour, we’re showing the faces of asthma and allergies. We’re neighbors, children, friends and relatives, co-workers, public servants. Our struggles begin on the inside where others can’t see or feel. But there is help! There are answers! AANMA and ACAAI are here to help you find answers that fit YOUR life.
