Asthma affects 25 million people nationwide and nearly one million people in IL. It is the leading cause of school absenteeism accounting for 10.5 million missed days a year. RHA’s Fight Asthma Now © program has taught more than 10,000 local youth how to manage their asthma. RHA’s Asthma Management program has trained more than 21,000 adult caregivers on how to respond to asthma emergencies. We are accepting requests for summer programming.
On 5/12, we hosted a Chicago Community Trust On the Table event in partnership with Chicago Asthma Consortium, University of Illinois at Chicago, and IIT Institute of Design to consider how community health, medicine and design can join forces to create healthy neighborhoods, beginning with a community response to asthma.
