The Asthma Alliance of North Carolina invites you to attend the annual North Carolina Asthma Summit. The 2008 Summit will feature the recently released Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma (Expert Review Panel 3), along with interpretation and related application. The Summit will also provide an excellent opportunity for asthma champions throughout North Carolina to showcase success stories and share strategies for dealing with asthma in our communities.
Participants will interact with supportive leaders within our state and other advocates who have made a significant impact on individuals with asthma. Afternoon breakout sessions will offer practical asthma-related information, resources, and exciting new projects.
Update! - There will also be two events surrounding the 2008 Asthma Summit. The first will be a "Breathe Well Live Well" training held by the American Lung Association on April 16th, 2008 at the Hawthorne Inn. The second event will be a "Asthma & Spirometry Workshop" on April 18th, 2008 at the Hawthorne Inn.
