MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 22, 2017 12:49 PM
From: Representative Robert F. Matzie
To: All House members
Subject: Recognizing May 2, 2017, as “World Asthma Day” in Pennsylvania
 
In the near future, I intend to introduce a resolution recognizing May 2, 2017, as “World Asthma Day” in Pennsylvania.

Asthma is defined as a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows airways resulting in recurring periods of wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and chronic coughing. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 17.7 million adults and 6.3 million children in the United States have asthma. In Pennsylvania, an estimated 979,527 adults and 281,301 children suffered from asthma in 2014.

In an effort to raise awareness and improve asthma care throughout the world, advocates annually celebrate the first Tuesday of May as “World Asthma Day.” This occasion encourages individuals to focus on daily asthma management and to identify allergens and irritants that can lead to and worsen asthma attacks.

By recognizing “World Asthma Day” in Pennsylvania, we are supporting those who suffer from asthma and encouraging others to help them control their symptoms. Please consider cosponsoring this important resolution.
