As a reminder, the asthma contest, part of the education campaign called Everyone Breathe is still under way and the deadline is approaching on July 29 for submissions
You still have a chance to sign up for the contest to win.
All the details are available in my previous post available here. Here is a snapshot too, below.
Parents or guardians of children with asthma are encouraged to submit an application and nominate their child and their child’s school for one of 10 grand prizes. Ten winning applications will be selected: the 10 students in the winning applications will receive $2,500 savings bonds and the 10 schools in the winning applications will receive $5,000 grants to conduct education and implement asthma-friendly tools and resources to better the school environment.
My client Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. has teamed up with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and grand slam tennis champion and mom Mary Joe Fernandez who lives with asthma and cares for her young son who has the condition as well.
Mary Joe Fernandez battled symptoms of asthma for years, and now as a mom of a young child with the same condition she says, "I can't emphasize enough the importance of quality asthma care both at home and in school.” Further, she conveys "parents of children with asthma [need] to take a proactive role in helping them lead healthy and symptom-free lives and one way to do this is to help make their environments more asthma-friendly."
Visit www.everyonebreathe.com to nominate your child with asthma and their school for the Everyone Breathe Asthma Education savings bond and grant. Submit a nomination including your proposal on what asthma care and education needs to be done within your child's school environment.
