Louisville, Ky. named the No. 1 national Fall Allergy Capital for two years running
LANDOVER, Md. – Louisville, Ky. is America's hot spot for allergies this year, according to the latest Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America Fall Allergy Capitals report. The report, released Wednesday, ranks the 100 most challenging places to live in the United States with fall allergies based on regional pollen data, medication use and the number of allergy specialists in the largest 100 U.S. metropolitan areas.
"For over a decade, our Allergy Capitals rankings have reminded patients and doctors that nasal allergies affect families and communities nationwide," stated Cary Sennett, AAFA's president and CEO. "But, no matter where you live, you can get help from an allergist and learn how to manage your fall allergies better."
Louisville was named the No. 1 national Fall Allergy Capital – meaning it's the most challenging place to live in the U.S. with fall allergies – for the 2nd consecutive year, and the 3rd time in 13 years. Louisville's very high pollen scores and very high medication utilization were the main factors contributing to its place in the top spot.
This year's other top-10 cities include:
- Louisville, Ky.;
- Jackson, Miss.;
- McAllen, Texas;
- Syracuse, N.Y.;
- Knoxville, Tenn.;
- Oklahoma City;
- Dayton, Ohio;
- Wichita, Ks.; and
- Baton Rouge, La.
Carmex and Green Bay Packers solidify multi-year partnership
Franklin, Wis. – Carma Laboratories last week announced the beginning of a multi-year partnership with the Green Bay Packers, a new relationship that brings together two strong Wisconsin businesses and officially identifies Carmex as a partner of the Green Bay Packers.
"We are excited to team up with the Green Bay Packers,” stated Jona Mancuso, marketing director for the Carmex brand. “This is an incredible opportunity to connect Carmex with dedicated football fans across the nation. Football is one of the most popular sports in North America and our partnership with the Packers makes perfect sense as we continue to grow together. Also, given the cold weather conditions at Green Bay’s Lambeau Field, Carmex products are perfect to have on hand to help relieve dry, chapped lips.”
In support of the partnership, Carmex will help create fun and memorable fan experiences at three home games with a tent sent up offering Carmex giveaway items and a special appearance by the Carmex Mascot. Fans can also enter into the #CarmexSuperfan social media promotion by uploading a picture to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that illustrates how their favorite Carmex product helps them get ready for the big game.
Throughout the #CarmexSuperFan campaign, five winners will be selected randomly each week. Each weekly winner will receive a prize pack consisting of Carmex lip balm products and a variety of Carmex branded merchandise. At the end of the promotion, one photo will be selected as the Ultimate #CarmexSuperfan based on originality, quality, and brand appeal. The Ultimate #CarmexSuperfan will receive a $500 American Express gift card. All eligible photo entries submitted over the course of the promotion are automatically entered into the Ultimate #CarmexSuperfan photo contest.
Carmex is accepting #CarmexSuperfan entries until Nov. 22.
In addition to media, on-site activation, branding and hospitality at Lambeau Field, Carmex and the Green Bay Packers will be working closely together to implement various promotional efforts over the course of the partnership.
