Community invited to ‘Blow the Whistle on Asthma’
May is Asthma Awareness Month and staff members at The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida are hosting a fun-filled educational event that will provide multiple learning stations to highlight pediatric asthma education and control strategies.
The event will be held Wednesday, May 20 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida, HealthPark Medical Center Atrium, 9981 S. HealthPark Drive, Fort Myers.
Asthma is commonly seen in children and is a leading cause of hospital stays and school absences. Children with asthma may be able to breathe normally most of the time. When they encounter a substance that can cause problems (a “trigger”), an asthma attack (exacerbation) can occur.
Come out and tour our booths and learn more about treating asthma symptoms effectively.
