Asthma can be a frightening, debilitating, even life-threatening condition, especially for children and their families. Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital (PMCH) believes that providing quality information about asthma and its treatment can empower children and families to better manage the condition, enabling them to participate more fully in a wide range of activities.
The PMCH School and Community Asthma Program offers free asthma classes for parents, students and teachers in conjunction with the Asthma Alliance of Indianapolis. In fiscal year 2009, the program coordinator served more than 5,000 children and families at more than 100 schools and communities.
