REQUEST: Asthma Mask


I am a severe asthmatic and would like to make a #request for an antipollution face mask. I'm a doctoral student at Columbia University and must commute into New York City for seminars. The campus is gorgeous, but even the most beautiful places in NYC are full of allergens and irritants. My commute is especially difficult on my breathing-- public transportation is unavoidable. Even though my insurance covers a lot of helpful medical devices including my nebulizer and inhalers, a face mask is not on the approved list of items.

Thanks for your consideration.
