Here, doctors specialize in the comprehensive care of babies, children, and teenagers with mild to severe forms of asthma. Nurses, respiratory therapists, case managers, and social workers are also part of the team. They all work together to ensure that your child's asthma plan is as effective as possible.
Outpatient asthma services are available in several locations, including:
Pediatric pulmonary outpatient offices
Pediatric allergy and clinical immunology offices
General pediatric outpatient offices
Wherever your child receives services, he or she benefits from the best team-based asthma care available, based on the latest national guidelines. For example, your child may receive asthma medicine and devices to help take this medicine. Our nurses and respiratory therapists will work with you and your child to ensure that you understand the care plan and that it will be easy for you to manage at home.
In addition to clinical care, the center's community of asthma experts works together on research and education to offer solutions to the growing problem of asthma, particularly among children in urban neighborhoods. Outreach efforts, including teacher and parent education, are also a top priority at the center.
