Faces of Allergies and Asthma on Times Square

Watch the video as seen in Times Square!

The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA) take on asthma and allergies in Times Square!  We're telling the story on the CBS Super Screen at 42nd Street.  While people with allergies and asthma don't look so different on the outside, they have serious health issues that impact every aspect of their lives.

New York City has some of the most troubling asthma and allergy statistics in the country, but these are global problems.  What better place to reach the masses with good news and real help than Times Square?  It's where you'll see people of all nations bustling shoulder-to-shoulder through their day, never knowing that 1 out of every 4 people around them have one or both conditions.

In the space of 15 seconds, once every hour, we're showing the faces of asthma and allergies.  They're your neighbors, children, friends and relatives, co-workers and public servants.  Their struggles begin on the inside where others can't see or feel.  But there is help!  There are answers!  ACAAI and AANMA are here to help you find answers that fit YOUR life.

Now that you've found us, get to know us.  There are lots of allergy and asthma resources available here.  Take some time and take a look.
