Asthma is the most common chronic condition in children and affects nearly 1 in 10 children. It is also the primary reason children miss school – an average of 13.8 million lost days of school each year. Asthma in children can be especially serious because children have smaller airways than adults. In this webinar, learn about childhood asthma, how to work with parents of children with asthma, and how to teach children about using their inhalers properly.
