WHAT WE

TREAT

ALLERGY

AVOIDANCE

 

Obviously, you aren’t expected to live your life in a bubble, but there are things that can be done to minimize your exposure to specific allergens. For example, if you are allergic to dust, you can dust-proof your bedroom by using allergy-proof mattress and pillow covers. If you are allergic to pollen and/or grass, it is beneficial to keep your windows closed and to shower immediately following outdoor activities. There are many ways to cut down on the allergens in your environment. Talk to your allergist or physician about any information that they can provide on allergy avoidance.

WELLNESS, EDUCATION

& SCREENING PROGRAMS

Wellness/Education Program

Asthma, Allergy and Clinical Immunology of Chester County is pleased to offer communication education programs on a variety of allergy topics ranging from food to asthma to anaphylaxis. If your group or organization would be interested in an allergy-specific program, please contact us. These programs occur in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and allow participants to gain a general overview of the topic being discussed. An interactive question-answer session can be held as well. Please note, however, that these programs offer a broad overview of a particular topic and are not a replacement for advice from your physician.

Our Wellness/Education Program is designed to benefit your community organization, school, university, PTA group, or corporate wellness program. So please contact us for more information on how we can help establish a solid understanding of allergies and asthma.

Asthma Screening Programs

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition of the lungs, and it’s being diagnosed more and more frequently. Common misconceptions about the diagnosis and treatment of asthma are resulting in significant loss of productivity and time from work and school. This all in addition to the individual burden of the patient with asthma.

 

For the past several years, Asthma, Allergy and Clinical Immunology of Chester County has participated in the National Asthma Screening Day sponsored by the American College of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology. Because of the growing number of people affected by asthma, AACICC has expanded this program to offer asthma screenings to interested organizations and corporations. By offering asthma screenings on a year-round basis, we will be better able to identify undiagnosed asthma patients and patients who may need more aggressive asthma care. The result: patients who gain better control of their asthma and consequently have less time lost and higher productivity at school and work.

 

For more information on either of these programs, please call 610-436-5491 and ask to speak with Dr. Andrew Murphy or Felicia.
