The AAE would like to introduce a new program called Asthma Advocates of the Month. If you know anyone doing meaningful asthma work, you can nominate that person to receive this award. Each month, the nominees will receive a commendation letter from the AAE and be listed on our website. Each nominee will also receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for his/her efforts. The recipient does not have to be an active member of the AAE. If you would like to nominate someone, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the person’s name, email address and a few sentences on why he/she deserves this recognition.
