Free Asthma Education Program From NVHD And Griffin Hospital

Eugene Driscoll Photo Does your child have asthma? Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways of the lungs. Although asthma has no cure, it can be managed so a person can live a normal, healthy life.

According to the 2016 Valley Community Index, 13 percent of adults and 10 to 16 percent of children living in the Valley have asthma.

Naugatuck Valley Health District and Griffin Hospital are hosting an asthma education program for you to learn how to manage your child’s asthma, what are asthma symptoms and triggers, asthma medications and the importance of an asthma action plan.

The event will be held on June 19, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at Griffin Hospital, Dining Room. Dinner will be provided. All attendees will get entered into a raffle for a $25 gift card to Target.

We hope to raise awareness about asthma and provide education in our community!

Join us on June 19th to learn ways to help your child manage asthma! To RSVP, please call or email Carissa Caserta, 203-881-3255 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) by June 11, 2018.
