of Asthma Awareness Month, EPA developed an Event Planning Kit, an Asthma
Awareness Month Web page, and Event Listing forms. Visit www.epa.gov/asthma/awm.html

Internet search engine to view the Web site link.
The Event Planning Kit is a free resource for community organizers, health care
providers, school nurses, teachers, and everyone who is committed to raising
awareness of asthma triggers and their management. The Kit includes ideas and
tips on organizing events in local schools, hospitals, clinics, libraries, and
state capitols, and provides sample proclamations, letters to the editor, and
other resources to make it easy for you to organize outreach events. You will
find an order form with descriptions of EPA's Asthma outreach products in the
Kit. All of EPA's resources are available to you at no-cost.
Let EPA know what you plan to do during Asthma Awareness Month and EPA will
publicize your upcoming events on their national Web site. A link from the
Asthma Awareness Month Web page will take you to an online event listing form
where you can enter information about your planned events. EPA's Web site
includes a map of Asthma Awareness Month activities where you can see what is
planned in your state.
