Asthma advocacy program: Three young girlsMission Statement

American Family Children's Hospital's Asthma Advocacy Program is dedicated to promoting health and wellness by empowering, educating and advocating for children with asthma and their families, providing connections to resources and building trusting partnerships with families, community agencies and providers in our community.

What do we do?

  • Asthma education: We provide asthma education to community organizations using the American Lung Association's Asthma 101 curriculum.
  • School-based asthma education: We work with school districts to implement Iggy and the Inhalers Asthma Education for elementary students and Kickin' Asthma for middle and high school students.
The Madison Asthma Camp teaches children that having asthma does not mean you cannot play and exercise.

Madison Asthma Camp
