May  


Every May, FARE hosts a nationwide Food Allergy Awareness Week to shine a spotlight on the seriousness of food allergies and to improve public understanding of this potentially life-threatening medical condition. By increasing awareness, we can encourage respect, promote safety, and improve the quality of life of the 15 million Americans affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis.

2016 Theme: "Food Allergies: React with Respect"

A food allergy reaction sends someone to the ER every 3 minutes. Your friends, family and coworkers can experience severe reactions to every day foods like eggs, milk, shellfish or nuts. Symptoms can include trouble breathing and low blood pressure; the most severe reactions can result in death.


Each year, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) declares May to be "National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month." It's a peak season for asthma and allergy sufferers, and a perfect time to educate your patients, family, friends, co-workers and others about these diseases.

There is no cure for asthma and allergies, and many deaths are preventable with proper treatment and care. Ten people a day die from asthma. Asthma affects 24 million Americans. And 6.3 million children under the age of 18 suffer from asthma. More than 50 million Americans have all types of allergies – pollen, skin, latex and more. The rate of allergies is climbing. Please join us in raising awareness for these common diseases.

 

Mental Health Month

Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition.

During the month of May, NAMI and participants across the country are bringing awareness to mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Each year, the movement grows stronger.

These issues are important to address all year round, but highlighting these issues during May provides a time for people to come together and display the passion and strength of those working to improve the lives of all Americans whose lives are affected by mental health conditions.

1 in 5 Americans will be affected by a mental health condition in their lifetime and every American is affected or impacted through their friends and family and can do something to help others.


The first week of May is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week


 

Better Speech & Hearing Month

Each May, Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) provides an opportunity to raise awareness about communication disorders and role of ASHA members in providing life-altering treatment.


 

Healthy Vision Month

When it comes to our health, we often visit our doctor or nurse regularly to make sure our bodies are healthy. But what about our eyes? They’re not always top of mind, but they’re just as important.

During Healthy Vision Month, held each May, the National Eye Institute empowers Americans to make their eye health a priority and educates them about steps they can take to protect their vision:

Taking these steps can help prevent vision loss or blindness from many eye diseases and conditions. In addition, dilated eye exams can detect problems early, when they’re easier to treat.


May is also…

National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month

May 5th is Hand Hygiene Day!

May 31st is World No Tobacco Day

Some allergies more generally grow ahead of schedule throughout everyday life, while others commonly create in later life. In created nations, a huge proportion of people believe they have food allergies when they really don't have them.

Now, it is too long that you launched this news that your new online shopping site is going to open up. Then why don’t you launch this brand until today? Why you are facing delays in them? If you have any query then why don’t you paste that over here?
