JUNE 9 WEBINAR - Registration Open

Join us for an open forum session with two presenters we're very excited to be hosting: Dr. Andrea Pappalardo of the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Dr. Felicia Fuller of the American Lung Association!

Dr. Pappalardo will be discussing various aspects of stock reliever inhalers - such as albuterol - in schools, from policy to implementation and related concerns. With recent changes in policy somewhat overshadowed by the recent COVID-19 pandemic, this issue remains a major concern in updating school health practices.

Dr. Fuller will be covering the American Lung Association's recent work on the ground in schools across the Chicago area, and ways in which community-based partnerships are essential for school-based asthma management, in particular school-based health centers.


As part of our recent collaboration with the Metropolitan Tenants Organization, the CAC hosted an Ask an Expert panel focused on potential asthma triggers and risks in the home.  Dr. Sharmilee Nyenhuis of the University of Chicago, Kim Jay of Sinai Urban Health Institute (SUNI), and Madeline Woodberry of Sinai Urban Health Institute take you on a virtual tour of a home and discuss how to look for, identify, and manage potential asthma hazards!
