Salute Your School Nurse at “Breath of Spring 2012” for Asthma and Allergies

Every day families depend on skilled and dedicated school nurses to take care of children with many health problems. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, New England Chapter is saluting school nurses on April 20 in recognition of their vital work.

“You don’t have to have children with life-threatening food allergies or chronic asthma to take this opportunity to let your school nurse know how much you appreciate her,” said Elaine Erenrich Rosenburg, the Executive Director of AAFA New England. The organization runs a monthly educational support group at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.

The tributes will be included in the organization’s annual “Breath of Spring” festivities at Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, MA on Friday, April 20. The evening will include lively casino games and a silent auction. Proceeds help fund AAFA New England’s educational programs for families affected by asthma and allergies, as well as public awareness and training to help teachers, coaches, child care providers, and others understand and take better care of children with these chronic diseases. For tickets, or to place tribute to a school nurse in the program book, visit or call AAFA New England at 781-444-7778.
