Oakville, Ontario

6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
Halton Regional Centre (Bronte Room), 1151 Bronte Road

A forum for the public and practitioners with leading Canadian researchers and asthma and allergy specialists
Research has shown that every September and December there is a predictable rise in severe asthma attacks and hospitalization rates among school-age children. This peak is known as the September and December “asthma spike.” Increased emergency room visits during these months take children out of the classroom at critical points in the school year. In addition, it often causes family members to miss work and places significant pressure on the healthcare system.

Join leading Canadian medical experts specializing in childhood asthma research, care, diagnosis and treatment, along with representatives of community organizations for an interactive discussion on the September and December asthma spikes, prevention tips and best practices in asthma management.
