EFA - French symposium on health impacts of allergies and environment at school

The European Federation of Allergy and Airways Diseases Patients Association (EFA) participated in a national symposium on ‘Allergies and the environment: their impact on health and education’ in Paris, organised by the French Association for Health Prevention at School and University (AFPSSU).

The event gathered experts from all over France including medical staff in educational institutions, allergologists, patients, air quality researchers or engineers to present and discuss the effects that polluted, crowded and allergenic environments can have on children and studying adults.

EFA was honoured to accompany EFA’s Member Asthma and Allergies presentation and to participate in a panel focusing on the patient perspective at European level and presenting the latest environmental and health policy developments within the EU institutions.

EFA’s presentation is available here here.
