The Asthma and Allergy Foundation in collaboration with The University of Aberdeen, and The University of Aberdeen Development Trust, proudly presented an immersive exhibition raising awareness about asthma. This captivating display, ran from May 3 to May 10 at the Sir Duncan Rice Library, University of Aberdeen, before moving to the Foresterhill Health Campus from May 11th to May 18th in commemoration of May as Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.

The exhibition aimed to shed light on the challenges faced by students and staff dealing with asthma. Its centrepiece featured inflatable lungs and vibrant balloons, symbolising resilience for those affected by this health condition. Visitors immersed themselves in an interactive experience, learning about asthma and the support provided by the charity while fostering a sense of empathy and community.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation, known for its advocacy for asthma education and awareness in the West and the Northeast of Scotland, strives to improve the lives of individuals living with this condition. By joining forces with The University of Aberdeen and The University of Aberdeen Development Trust, they aim to create a supportive environment for staff and students while raising broader awareness throughout the designated month.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the exhibit at the Sir Duncan Rice Library. I think it effectively emphasises the importance of the asthma and allergy awareness month, especially considering its location at the entrance of the library," said Salma Lopez MSc Global Health and Management graduate from the University of Aberdeen. "This positioning allows students and visitors to pause and reflect for a moment about asthma, even amidst their hectic lives."

Attendees were encouraged to capture their experience and share it with the world, using the hashtags #AsthmaAwareness and #AsthmaWarrior. By doing so, they contributed to spreading awareness and supporting the cause.
