EPA Offers Resources, Planning Guides, Tips, and Other Resource for May’s Asthma Awareness Month

May is Asthma Awareness Month, a time to educate asthma stakeholders about this chronic condition and how it can be controlled. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offers a variety of resources for planning your Asthma Awareness Month activities:  

  • Download EPA’s Asthma Awareness Month Event Planning Kit, which features ideas for outreach and awareness activities, tips for working with the media, success stories, and much more. 
  • Already have an event planned? Publicize it on the AsthmaCommunityNetwork.org Events Calendar. Make sure to designate it as an “Asthma Awareness Month” event so others can easily recognize that your event is part of this national effort. If you have multiple events planned, add each event separately to maximize your marketing impact. 
  • After your event takes place, write a blog post to share your successes with our community. You can even upload pictures from your events. Your stories can help others in planning their own successful events.
