The president and chief executive officer of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) will represent patients with these conditions at an invitation-only forum examining access to prescription drugs.
Cary Sennett, MD, PhD, joins other stakeholders to discuss how medications can remain both affordable yet innovative. This meeting will take place in Washington, D.C. on November 20 from 9 AM – 4 PM at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). You can watch live on your computer.
Advocating for access to affordable and new medications to treat chronic conditions like asthma and allergies is a priority for AAFA. Yet rising drug and out-of-pocket costs are burdens on people around the country. For instance, some families have multiple children on allergy and asthma medicines.
It is important for HHS to hear from health organizations like AAFA and Kids With Food Allergies about how we can fix this urgent problem. Kids With Food Allergies is a division of AAFA.
