The Allergy & Asthma Network (AAN) is celebrating 30 years of allergy and asthma advocacy and research.
The AAN is responsible for many of the guidelines and laws that currently protect students, restaurant- goers, grocery-shoppers and government research programs. The AAN is celebrating its anniversary with a series of outreach, education and advocacy events in Washington, D.C., followed by a nationwide educational tour for pediatricians and healthcare providers.
Celebration announces new resources for ‘patient-centered, coordinated healthcare’
The celebrations begin with a re-launch of the organization’s website and new patient education resources.
“Our 30th anniversary is an opportunity not only to celebrate a significant milestone, but also to reinforce our vision for patient-centered, coordinated healthcare,” says Tonya Winders, Allergy & Asthma Network president and CEO.
The celebration begins through the hosting of 30th Anniversary events starting May 6 and the 18th annual Allergy & Astham Day Capitol Hill when the AAN holds a congressional briefing and advocacy meetings with members of congress.
Those briefings take place on May 6 followed by education sessions for patients and healthcare professionals in May 7. Outreach evening at a Washington Nationals game then takes place on May 8.
Following this, a 35-city tour progresses through the country to provide outreach and educational support for healthcare providers, pediatricians and more.
