Public Education:

Find an Allergist, Find Relief Campaign: The nation’s allergists offer new tools to help patients find relief. By answering questions about their symptoms in the online Relief Self-Test, visitors can receive a personal plan to eliminate their suffering. The site also has a calculator that reveals the total time spent suffering from allergy and asthma symptoms over a lifetime. It offers tips for managing spring allergies; general information about allergies, asthma and other allergic diseases; an e-newsletter with the latest updates; podcasts and videos on allergies and asthma; and an allergist locator. Personal stories of patients who worked with an allergist to treat their allergies and asthma also are available online. The College conducts a national media campaign to publicize the Web and raise public awareness about allergic diseases.

 

Nationwide Asthma Screening Program: Through the ACAAI Nationwide Asthma Screening Program, members conduct more than 250 free asthma screenings across the country every year. Since 1996,  more than 110,000 adults and children have been screened through the program. The College conducts a national media campaign to publicize the screenings and raise public awareness about asthma.

 

HOME: Home Allergy Management for Everyone: With the fight for allergy prevention increasingly focused on the home, the ACAAI launched HOME: Home Allergy Management for Everyone, a new program aimed at managing exposure to indoor allergens. The online resource features five important steps, room-by-room tips, information on different types of prominent indoor allergens, and an interactive Allergy Index Indoor Rating Tool with customized information on how to manage exposure to allergens in the home.

 

Connections to Health Care: The ACAAI  “Connections to Health Care” Program helps patients receive the best health plan benefits for allergy and asthma care. Central to the program is a brochure, Checking Up on the Best Health Plans.

 

Be S.A.F.E. Managing Allergic Emergencies: For managing allergic emergencies (anaphylaxis), the ACAAI “Be S.A.F.E.” program educates patients on how to be prepared for a severe allergic reaction.

 

Member Initiatives:

Allergist Buyers Guide: An online marketplace, where allergists can peruse allergy practice materials and products by vendor.
