Did you know that today is World Asthma Day? Organized and sponsored by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA), World Asthma Day is an initiative that began in 1998 to raise awareness for Asthma and to advocate for improved asthma care world-wide.

The theme for this year’s World Asthma Day is “You can control your asthma”, and GINA has provided many resources and activities on their website to aid in the management of asthma in both children and in adults.

Our researchers are passionate about helping patients understand and manage their asthma. In “Asthma 101”, our Co-Director┬áDr. Mark FitzGerald shares his insights on how to live well with asthma. Click here to watch!
