is for kids to find information just for them concerning lung health.
The Clean Air Kids Club allows children to learn about air pollution and what they can do to clean the air. By taking the Clean Air Challenge, kids can earn a Clean Air patch while helping the environment.
Of particular importance is the All About Asthma section. Asthma is the number one chronic illness for children and the rates are growing. Many children with asthma can play sports and live the active lives they want, as long as their asthma is properly managed. Teaching your child to take their medicine regularly, monitor their own activities and recognize when an asthma episode may be happening can allow both you and your child to enjoy a full, active life without worry.
We suggest you read through this All About Asthma section with your child and discuss it with your doctor. We also have asthma information for adults on our Main Website.
CHAMP Camp is a special summer overnight camp for children ages 8-12 with asthma. CHAMP stands for Children's Health and Asthma Management Program. CHAMP Camp is free for Los Angeles County children diagnosed with mild to severe Asthma.
