EFA Board Member Mikaela OdemyrMikaela Odemyr is EFA President, Vice-President of the Swedish Asthma and Allergy Association (Astma och Allergi Förbundet), mother of three children (14, 18, 20) with severe asthma and food allergies.

I’ve volunteered for the last twenty years to make a difference for patients in my country before becoming EFA President. The scope has changed but somehow the goals are the same: improve the care, environment and prevention of allergy and respiratory diseases so that patients feel comfortable about the disease and can be who they truly are.
