Virtual event series: Navigating Asthma this School Year

Questions about how back-to-school season will affect Canadian students with asthma? The Lung Health Foundation is providing free digital learning sessions for parents, guardians, and educators.

Asthma affects roughly one in five Canadian children.  Through our Navigating Asthma This School Year series, the Lung Health Foundation is helping parents, guardians, and educators keep them safe from asthma flare-ups at school.
