Immediate access to quick-relief medicine saves lives.

Students with asthma should have immediate access to a bronchodilator or quick-relief medication to quickly reverse the narrowing of the airways that happens during an asthma episode. Please share why you think a Stock Bronchodilator Policy is important and the benefits that you have seen among students with asthma.

Your story will be accessible on our website, and potentially featured in social media posts and newsletters. Showcasing real stories from people like you will help build awareness about the importance of the availability of stock medication in schools, provide guidance to schools considering adopting a model policy, and inspire schools across the country to put policies and practices in place to protect students with asthma.

Please fill out the form below to share your story. You will have the option to upload a picture on the next step.
