This program focused on various lifestyle and medication tools that can help manage asthma symptoms. 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 the tools and techniques that can be used to manage asthma.

CAC hosted 2-3 regional educational and networking meetings called Kick Asthma: Knowledge Forums. The forums are an opportunity to come together to learn from experts in asthma care, network with colleagues and community members and to share information from asthma related organizations throughout Chicagoland.
