A Message from the AAAAI

Image with Link to Video of AAAAI President Dr. Fasano Welcoming Viewers to the AAAAI COVID-19 Resources PageAs the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) spreads across the globe, we recognize the importance of our roles as healthcare providers, particularly to patients known for asthma, other allergic conditions, or immune deficiencies who may be at a higher risk of experiencing severe symptoms from the disease. The same way that you are committed to your patients, practices, and communities, we at the AAAAI remain committed to providing you with resources that will help you navigate this difficult period.

Because this is an evolving situation, we invite you to bookmark this page and check it often. We will be continually adding resources, marked with an important update symbol Important Update Symbol and listed on the Important Updates page.

If you have any specific questions regarding the treatment of patients or management of your practice, please contact us at practicematters@aaaai.org.

Advocacy Updates and Outreach Tools

The AAAAI is committed to advocating for our members and your patients, and maximizing our effectiveness requires broad engagement: AAAAI leadership, our Advocacy Committee and other volunteer leaders, our team of government relations experts at Hart Health Services, and our professional staff; but most importantly – our members. Member engagement in advocacy outreach is important at the national, state, and local level. Visit our special COVID19-focused advocacy page frequently for the latest on related national news: AAAAI COVID-19 Advocacy 

Engagement on the national level is just one part of impactful outreach. We are pleased to provide you with resources to use in your own community. There’s a template media alert you can use to describe the unique perspective that you as an allergist can offer, and a template press release on what patients need to know about asthma and COVID-19. There’s a set of talking points to get you started, but of course your discussion of what’s happening in your own community is the most influential. Modify the templates for your own use in your community. Please note that use of these materials is for your own outreach and not on behalf of the AAAAI, but please let us know how it goes and send your clips or questions to advocacy@aaaai.org.
