Allergy and Asthma Day on Capitol Hill
Allergy & Asthma Network invites patients, families, caregivers, health professionals and industry partners from across the country to join us each year for Allergy & Asthma Day Capitol Hill (AADCH).
During AADCH, advocates visit Capitol Hill to meet with members of Congress and their staff. They discuss federal legislative and regulatory issues, share personal stories of managing their condition, and urge passage of legislation affecting people with asthma, allergies and related conditions. Advocates often represent the patient voice at these meetings.
In addition, every year Allergy & Asthma Network hosts a Congressional Lunch Briefing during AADCH. The briefing, available via livestream for those not able to attend in person, is one of the signature events of AADCH. Members of Congress are often in attendance to speak about asthma, allergies and other health issues.
