CHICAGO ASTHMA CONSORTIUM
Join us for CAC's Spring 2024 Lunch & Learn Series!
Join us for CAC's Spring 2024 Lunch & Learn series! These days, schedules seem to be more packed than ever; but learning more about asthma management doesn't have to take hours. On the Third Wednesday of each month at noon, we'll be hosting a 30-minute, informal Zoom group with an expert in the field of asthma to educate and answer questions around asthma and issues that can affect those living with it. Lunch and Learn is free and open to all, and designed to be valuable for everyone, from experienced healthcare workers to community members looking to improve their ability to care for themselves and their loved ones.

The American Lung Association of Greater Chicago has launched their new Home Assessment Program!

The American Lung Association is able to offer FREE home assessments virtually or in person!
