More than 60 million Americans live with allergies or asthma. COVID-19 brought much needed attention to lung and respiratory challenges, but where do allergy and asthma patients go now in this emerging post-pandemic world?
Tonya Winders, President and CEO of the Allergy and Asthma Network, explains the hurdles that remain for this patient population, including poor access to primary care providers and high out-of-pocket costs. Also, Kate speaks with allergy patient and entrepreneur Evan Edwards about his journey to create an epinephrine injector that worked for him. Bob and Terry look at health policies under discussion on Capitol Hill that could impact patients, while correspondent Ella Balasa shares her story about living with cystic fibrosis.
