BC Lung is planning to kick off its new Asthma Education Pilot Workshop 'Breathe 1-2-3' for children with asthma this coming World Asthma Day - May 3, 2022.
We are currently looking for children aged 8 to 10 years, with physician-diagnosed asthma, to volunteer and help us pilot test the workshop.
Every child who agrees to participate will receive a backpack containing 'Breathe 1-2-3' materials (including games and the chance for those who participate to win fun prizes!)
Following the workshop, each participant will be asked what they liked and did not like about the workshop. Participant responses will help shape the workshop as it evolves.
'Breathe 1-2-3' Pilot Workshop Format: Two 1.25 hour sessions delivered virtually
Session Dates & Time: Tuesday, May 3 & Tuesday, May 10, 2022 | 6 to 7:15pm PT
Session Facilitators: Certified asthma educators
