 Did you know that Fresno County…

 

  • Has a disproportionately higher rate of asthma.
  • Has a higher asthma rates among the poor.
  • Has higher asthma rates in children.
  • And that asthma rates in Fresno County are on the rise despite an overall decline in California asthma rates?!

 

SADLY, ALL IS TRUE.

May 1st is World Wide Asthma Awareness day and will kick off month long activities to promote asthma awareness in our communities. Come visit me on the Fulton Mall in downtown Fresno this Saturday for a spirometry screening to measure lung function. I’ll be joined by physicians from a local allergist’s office from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
