Awareness Campaign Aims to Educate & Promote Diagnosis of Hidden Airway Disorder Affecting Millions
To raise awareness of Airway Centered Disorder (ACD), the Foundation for Airway Health, with partners including health practitioners and concerned corporations, have declared October 2nd as “Global Airway Health Day.” The goal is to bring attention to this disorder and to promote a higher rate of proper diagnosis and treatment and in turn, a better quality of life.
The signs and symptoms often associated with ACD and that should be brought to a health care professional, such as a general care practitioner or dentist, include, but are not limited to:
Frequent Colds/Sore Throats/Tonsillitis
Chronic Headaches or Neck Pain
Impaired Immune Function
Trouble Falling or Staying Asleep
Health practitioners play a key role in this cause, so we have created a variety of tools to help you as you bring awareness to your colleagues, patients, and communities. All of these materials may be freely shared.
