Respiratory diseases affect more than 35 million people in the United States. Half of those who suffer are children. In addition, it is estimated that 50 percent of respiratory disease sufferers improperly treat their conditions.
Karen Daigle, MD visited the Nuestra
Salud Latino public radio show to
discuss the impact the fall/winter cold
and flu season can have on asthma.
Because patients and their families are an important part of the team, we provide education about the respiratory diseases that affect their lives.
In addition to our physician specialists, the center has two nurse practitioners, as well as staff nurses. They are all nationally certified asthma educators. Three additional nationally certified asthma educators staff our community asthma education and prevention program.
