The Triangle Asthma Coalition (formerly Wake County Asthma Coalition) works to increase public awareness of asthma and to improve conditions related to asthma health, says Lisa Feierstein, founder of Active Healthcare, Inc. in Raleigh and a member of the coalition’s leadership team.
“We are eager to reach as many children and families as we can in North Carolina with information about asthma,” says Gabrielle Steele, manager of mission services for the American Lung Association in North Carolina. The association offers special programs for children and adults in North Carolina such as the Open Airways for Schools (OAS) for children with asthma in grades 3-6 and Asthma 101 for adults. – See more at: Does Your Child Have Asthma
