I am a fierce patient advocate for the >60 million Americans living with allergies, asthma & related conditions. I am the mom of five young adults living with these conditions & have raised my voice as a carer & patient advocate for over twenty years. I am most disturbed by the barriers to access & health inequities in our space. We must band together to ensure the right treatment for the right patient at the right time with the fewest barriers. This can only be done by quality health insurance for all minimizing out of pocket costs.
