Free Allergies & Asthma Seminars Hosted by West Chester Hospital April 25 & 29

An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from all types of allergies (1 in 5 Americans) including indoor/outdoor, food and drug, latex, insect, skin and eye allergies, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. These statistics indicate that allergy prevalence overall has been increasing since the early 1908s across all age, sex and racial groups.

Further, according to the “Allergy Capitals,” an annual research project of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Cincinnati and Dayton have been identified as cities which are the most challenging place to live for those suffering with allergies. Cincinnati ranks 67 and Dayton ranks 8 on the 2015 “Top 100” list.

To help meet a community need for more education regarding various types of allergies and asthma, West Chester Hospital is offering free community seminars this month. During the seminars, a variety of questions will be addressed by the region’s leading allergy and immunology specialists, including What are the most common nasal allergies and associated triggers? Why are sinus infections so prevalent in the Midwest and how can one best manage this chronic condition? What is asthma and how does it affect the lungs? What are common food allergies and how are they diagnosed and treated? What causes urticarial, or hives, and how is it treated?
