Asthma & Allergies Webinar Registration

Asthma and Allergies

Asthma is a chronic disease that makes it harder to breathe.  The airways in the lungs are more sensitive when exposed to certain triggers. The disease is also common affecting ~10% of all Canadians. People can have allergies or asthma, however many people have both. Allergies increase your chance of having asthma and can make asthma symptoms worse.

Join us Wednesday, September 13th at 7 pm (CST) as Respiratory Therapist and Certified Respiratory Educator, Sara Han, will provide a presentation to members of the public, which focuses on the importance of controlling both asthma and allergies.
