The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) is partnering again this year with Teva Respiratory to offer free asthma screenings to communities nationwide.
Almost 130,000 people have been screened since the start of the Nationwide Asthma Screening Program, with half of those screened referred for a diagnosis. Teva’s continued financial support provides funding for the public education materials, publicity, and resources needed to conduct screenings. On a local level, Teva representatives help at three out of every four screenings.
Now in its 16th year, the Nationwide Asthma Screening Program will also offer testing for exercise induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) and allergic rhinitis this year.
A list of screening locations can be found at the Web site, AllergyAndAsthmaRelief.org.
