Is your asthma made worse by allergens in the air?

Our local AusPollen Apps provide daily levels of pollen in the air.

To help us evaluate the usefulness of our Apps and how we can improve this service, we invite you to complete a short questionnaire before and after the pollen season.

This research will help us site future pollen count stations and determine whether there are local triggers that make hay fever and asthma worse.

Best regards,

The AusPollen team.
