Community Asthma Initiative
Information for Parents
How we can help
We are here to help you and your child. To participate, your child must have asthma, live in Boston and be between 2 and 18 years old, and must have had recent Emergency Department visits, hospitalizations or been referred to CAI by your primary care provider.
- help you understand your child's asthma action plan
- visit you at home to find asthma triggers, review your child's medication and provide you with vacuums, bedding encasements, etc., and integrated pest management
- help you find the resources you need, including housing and insurance
- connect you to asthma education opportunities and asthma-friendly activities for your child
It is important for you to know that your child with asthma can be active and healthy with proper medical care.
