The Prevalence of Asthma in the U.S.

Asthma Infographic


I would like to thank Dr. Sue P. Nash and Dr. Lori Boies for their help in the early stages of this project, particularly in helping me with the approach to take in my research. I am also indebted to Dr. Linda Parsi for enlightening me about the prevalence of asthma during my shadowing experience at Parsi Pediatrics. And I am most grateful to my classmates, friends, and family for their assistance in the editing phase of this project as well as for providing encouragement during my research process. Lastly, I’d like to thank Dr. Boies for allowing me to bring awareness of this issue to my community.

  1. I love the way you designed this poster and how you made a connection to something related to health science and to natural science. I really really enjoyed how you put really cool graphics and designs for your poster. I also enjoyed how you explained what asthma is and how it affects the person who is actually experiencing the illness.

  2. This is such an informational read! My brother has asthma so I’m aware of it, I just didn’t know what causes it. Knowing this is important, so this should be something everyone should read. I appreciate that you not only just covered asthma in the United States, but also asthma throughout the world. I like the way you used font and color to make this great infographic!

  3. I have always been tangentially aware of asthma but had no idea that other things could cause asthma. I really appreciate that you highlighted the risk factors and race components to this discussion.

  4. You created an excellent infographic about asthma and its prevalence. The information is vital, and the graphics you gave were visually engaging. I also enjoyed how you used numbers from all across the world rather than just our own. Overall, outstanding work, and congratulations on your nomination!

  5. Hi Diana!
    First off, congratulations on the nomination! There was plenty of information for me to look at and understand, especially since I do not know much about asthma. Growing up, I have had teammates and family members with it, but I never really understood how it affected them and what could have caused them to have it. Thank you for sharing this information and good luck at the award ceremony!

  6. Hey Diana,
    Firstly, congrats on your nomination! I’m glad I read this infographic, and I’m personally drawn to it because members of my family have asthma.

    I don’t have a lot of knowledge about asthma, especially in the U.S., but your infographic helped me a lot! The design, color, fonts, and pictures used create a perfect mix and makes it pleasant to read. It was also practical that you not only focused in the United States for the numbers, but also around the world. I like infographics that spread awareness.
    Overall, amazing work and good luck!
