AAFA’s New England Chapter serves the six New England states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Since 1979, we have assisted thousands with asthma and allergies to live safer, healthier lives in many ways. We help adult patients and parents learn how to manage their asthma and allergies, including food allergies, in many settings. We train childcare providers, nurses and respiratory therapists; publish a newsletter and other educational materials; and provide telephone information and referrals to individuals and agencies. We work in communities and with the media to raise awareness about the seriousness of life-threatening allergies and asthma, and advocate for policies to  support and improve the lives of people with asthma and allergies.  Let us know how we can help YOU!
