Asthma affects an estimated 15 million people in the United States. Allergies affect ~ 50 million people in the US. Our own Richmond, Virginia, was named the asthma capital of the United States by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Most of us know someone who suffers from asthma, allergies or another breathing challenge like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)….perhaps that person is you. Breathing is something we all need to do in order to survive.
CommonHealth wants you to be able to do more than simply survive, we want you to thrive! We’ve taken the time to compile some information on each of these three topics: allergies, asthma and COPD. Our booklet provides easy to understand information, practical tips you can use immediately, and tools to help you achieve a high quality of life on a daily basis.
The Breathe Well campaign begins in January of 2015. Be sure to schedule an in-person program with your local Regional Coordinator. Incentive gifts are available while supplies last.
