Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America - A Great Site With Free Stuff

In my many Internet cruises, I re stumbled upon a site I am sure I had previously visited before. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is a great resource, not just for asthma, but also for food allergy information and free downloads.

They have some absolutely wonderful educational material many of which are available in both English and Spanish. They have lots of general information on all your basic food allergies, including a section on the American with Disabilities Act.

It is a great site to look around on your own, and see what is useful for your own particular situation. Some of the really cool (and free) things I found are:
This is a combination asthma/allergy/anaphalyxis action plan. Although it does not have all the cool colors I love on an emergency action plan, it is the first plan I have really seen that addresses both asthma and anaphalyxis to food allergies on the same action plan.

They have some great free downloads including 5x7 Cards that have all sorts of useful information. QuickAllergy Cards offer a fast way for you to learn life-saving information. “Your Epi-Pen® – Storage, Usage and Disposal” and “Allergy Emergencies – Is This Anaphylaxis?” are heavy-duty, 5”X 7” cards that are ready for you to personalize and tuck in your purse, briefcase or backpack. There are also great cards for asthma and related emergencies.

I love finding free stuff!!

Awesome find! I think it is new, I've been on their site before and never noticed it.
