The program of this year’s meeting focused on the latest scientific innovations  in the allergy research field and the newest evidenced-based medicine that can be applied to daily practices.  For the occasion, Courtney Sunna and Michele Cassalia both representing the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program were able to showcase some of the products that have earned the certification such as products from Dyson, National Allergy and Rabbit Air

With the growing importance of the certification program and the many more new clients that earned the certification in 2017, it is a great opportunity for us to showcase our certified products and interact with physicians and doctors. We took this opportunity to run a survey among the physicians who attended the Annual Scientific Meeting and the results show some very interesting insights on the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program

Results of the Physicians Survey

  • 80% of the physicians surveyed were aware of the Program
  • 88% of the physicians surveyed are very likely to tell their patients about Certified Products
  • 75% of the physicians surveyed have seen the Certification mark on products in stores.

The survey also highlighted the most common recommendations given by doctors to patients impacted by asthma and allergies, that are to:

  • buy products with a high-grade filter, including vacuum cleaners and dehumidifiers
  • use quality bedding that is an effective allergenAn allergen is a substance that triggers an allergic reaction. Many allergens may trigger an allergic or asthmatic response, including dust mites, animal dander, and... barrier.
