Asthma & Allergy BULLETIN

The Asthma & Allergy BULLETIN is published three times a year and mailed to current members of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, New England Chapter. Professional members receive multiple copies to distribute to patients.

The newsletter provides updates on the latest research and tips for living with asthma and allergies. “Ask the Doctor,” “Share Your Story,” and “From the Bookshelf” columns offer resources, answers to common questions and opportunities to learn from others.

Publication of the Asthma & Allergy BULLETIN is supported by a grant from The Thoracic Foundation.
