CHICAGO ASTHMA CONSORTIUM
CAC's November Conference Was a Success!
This program focused on various social determinants of health including race based inequities and environmental pollution that contribute to asthma challenges. Presenters who have extensive experience in the asthma and allergy fields discussed their particular areas of research and their clinical findings. Participants came away with a deeper understanding of tools and techniques that can be used to manage asthma, and how social determinants of health can impact asthma care and outcomes.
The American Lung Association of Greater Chicago has launched their new Home Assessment Program!
Is a member of your family with asthma waking at night? Is their medication just not taking care of their symptoms? A home assessment may be helpful. The American Lung Association is able to offer FREE home assessments virtually or in person!
