Does your state make the State Honor Roll 2012?

(Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America)

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America does a research project every year to see which states have statewide policies for people with asthma, food allergies and anaphylaxis.

  • Can your kids carry their inhaler at school? Can they carry their Epi Pen? Have the teachers been trained how to use the Epi Pens?

  • Do your schools ban smoking at all schools and school related events (football games, track meets, etc)

  • Does your state still use diesel school buses? Do they let the buses idle in front of the school?
They rank each state on 18 core policy standards. Your state can even get "extra credit" points in 15 different areas!

To see where your state ranks, click here.   You can get involved and make a difference, it's amazing the power people have to make a difference in their area. They have ideas of how you can help. Have fun!
