Asthma and Poverty in Children

Asthma is a disease that disproportionately affects those in poverty, especially children.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) is very focused on raising awareness of how poverty and environmental triggers adversely impacts asthma and puts children living in the inner cities at risk. Jacqui Vok, AAFA's Director of Programs, helped to connect NBC with the family and doctor featured in this Washington, DC story.

Kids With Food Allergies (KFA) is a division of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). AAFA is the largest and oldest nonprofit patient organization dedicated to asthma and allergies. KFA educates families and communities with practical food allergy management strategies to save lives and improve the quality of life for children and their families.
