February 28, 2019 – Virtual Film Screening and Panel Discussion: Asthma Alley
February 28, 2019 | 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm ET
Join American Lung Association, Allergy & Asthma Network, Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, and GroundTruth Films for a virtual film screening of “Asthma Alley,” a short documentary that follows a young teen with asthma and her classmates in the South Bronx, a neighborhood known for extraordinarily high rates of asthma.
Following the film will be a panel discussion geared toward patients with asthma. Hear from the filmmaker and additional expert health voices about the intersection of air pollution, asthma, health inequities, and climate change. The discussion will also identify ways for patients to protect themselves, and ways that everyone can help protect healthy air for all.
