The Asthma Society of Canada is pleased to announce the expansion of the former National Asthma Helpline into the Allergy and Asthma Education and Support Program. Allergy is a chronic disease that is highly prevalent but is often underestimated, under diagnosed and undertreated, thereby impacting one’s quality of life at work, school and play. This program not only continues to offer information and support on asthma, but also allergy health education and support.
The Asthma Society has Certified Asthma and Respiratory Educators across Canada who answer email and telephone inquiries in both English and French, providing up-to-date information and support on a variety of concerns and topics facing Canadians living with asthma and allergies, parents, caregivers and others impacted by asthma and associated allergies.
