Teva Pharmaceuticals Sponsors Asthma Awareness Night at the Philadelphia Phillies
Company raises asthma awareness in local community
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., May 14, 2012 – On Monday, May 14, 2012, Teva Respiratory will sponsor Asthma Awareness Night at the Philadelphia Phillies game at Citizen’s Bank Park, as has been done for the past several years given the challenge of asthma in the surrounding area. On this special evening during Asthma Awareness Month, fans will receive ProAir® HFA/Phillies hats and can participate in free asthma screenings at stations throughout the ballpark.
Teva employee, Marilee Kartje, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game. Marilee represents $18,880 collected from Teva employees in support of the American Lung Association (ALA) for the Philadelphia Fight for Air Walk that was held May 5, 2012.
During the game, fans can also participate in asthma screenings conducted by the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) located in three sections of the stadium.
“Teva Respiratory is committed to providing patients with access to asthma and nasal allergy medications. We are passionate about the work we do and are proud to offer medicines that ultimately help people breathe,” said Mark Salyer, executive vice president and general manager, Teva Respiratory.
Teva Respiratory offers treatment options for individuals with asthma, EIB, COPD, and nasal allergies and is committed to providing access to quality healthcare around the world.
