Airways are all over the airwaves these days, in large part thanks to the amazing work being done by AAPMD, FAH, TBI, and many other affiliated organizations and individuals to raise awareness, provide education, and deliver world class care.
With all the ongoing talk of viruses and airborne contaminants and the resulting reinvigorated focus on health in the media and society in general, more and more people are becoming aware of their previously undiagnosed airway issues. With this comes a rise in the need for care, which drives a need for airway focused healthcare providers. We must also remember that the economic instability brought about by the ongoing COVID situation has resulted in many families not being in as stable of a financial situation as before. We do not believe finances should be an obstacle to health.
As leaders in the Airway health space, we at the FAH, AAPMD and TBI and a host of our world-class collaborators felt compelled to unite and do all we can to address those needs. Already, we have worked together to provide over $250,000 in cost-free care to our respective communities (so far).
Air is a human right, and it's up to all of us as healthcare professionals to do all we can to ensure access to healthy breathing. We would be honored to have as many of you as possible join with us in this endeavor.

We invite you to pledge your time, knowledge and skills to the cause and bring better breathing to members of your community who may otherwise not have access to such care. One airway at a time, together we can bring about great positive change in the health of our patients, communities, societies, nations, and our planet.
