The Community Asthma Initiative at Boston Children's Hospital works with community partners in the city around asthma-related issues and activities.
We work with:
- Asthma Regional Council
- Boston Healthy Homes and Schools Collaborative
- Massachusetts Asthma Action Partnership
Our partners provide opportunities for children to participate in safe and healthy programs and activities, such as:
- Boston Asthma Swim Program - asthma education and swimming exercise.
Together with our partners, we also provide asthma education workshops and trainings for parents and providers.
