What are educational support programs?

Educational support  programs provide an opportunity for people with asthma and allergies (and/or family members, parents, and caregivers) to hear speakers, ask questions, learn more about managing asthma and allergies in “the real world,” and share ideas and strategies in a small group.

Each group has a physician advisor and a volunteer leader or co-leaders who plan topics of interest.  Updates will be posted on this website regularly.

To start an educational support program in your area, call us at 781-444-7778.  Most groups typically meet September through May.

Please send us your e-mail address and where you live, so that we may notify you of upcoming meetings.  Complete the form at the right or send an e-mail to: aafane@aafane.org. Please tell us where you live so we can let you know about programs in your area.

Call the AAFA New England office if you have questions or if weather issues may cause the cancellation of a meeting (781-444-7778).

All programs are free and open to the public.
