The Phillies and Teva Respiratory are teaming up to raise awareness of asthma, which continues to be a widespread issue in the city of Philadelphia.
For the second year in a row, Teva Respiratory is hosting Phillies Asthma Awareness Night in partnership with the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) on Thursday, May 19 at Citizens Bank Park, before and during the 7:05 p.m. Phillies game against the Colorado Rockies.
As part of the event, free asthma screenings will be available for all fans at the First Base, Third Base and Left Field Gate entrances. Screenings will take place once the ballpark gates open until the 7th inning.
Adults and children who may experience symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath or wheezing can stop by any location to be screened by a local healthcare professional and find out if they are at risk for asthma or exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB).
