It provides support for patients and families though a national network of chapters, educational support groups, and online communities. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America advocates on behalf of patients for better policies, including access to medication and air quality, and is the only patient group that awards research grants for both asthma and allergies in search for better treatments and cures.
