Deja Vu for Six States on Annual Asthma & Allergy Honor Roll
Date:8/24/2009

Updated Report Also Features New 'Honorable Mention' States that Made Progress in 2009

LANDOVER, Md., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For over 8 million children with asthma, food allergies and related conditions, the school-house is a focal point for managing their diseases. Now for the second year in a row, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has released a report assessing school-based policies that address student health for elementary, middle and high schools in all 50 states.

The goal of the Foundation's annual State Honor Roll(TM) of Asthma and Allergy Policies for Schools (www.StateHonorRoll.com) is to identify ongoing, state-level progress towards better school-based policies and practices, and to provide a blueprint for asthma and allergy advocates nationwide.

This year's Honor Roll list looks similar to last year's: the six states with the largest number of supportive asthma and allergy school policies were the same six states named in the report last year. But the updated 2009 report also includes new information, including a list of "honorable mention" states that have shown significant progress over the past year, new interactive links to relevant policies in each state, and additional expanded state rankings on special "extra credit" indicators.

The 2009 Honor Roll states are:

  • Connecticut
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont
  • Washington

For the report, three broad categories of policy types were assessed: Medication & Treatment, Awareness and School Environment. Within these categories AAFA research and policy experts, in consultation with leaders
