CVS/pharmacy Draw A Breath Asthma Education Program In a partnership to educate parents, children and health
care providers about pediatric asthma, Hasbro Children's
Hospital and CVS/pharmacy launched the CVS/pharmacy Draw a
Breath Asthma Education Program, which included the production
of a book and videotape, both called Relieve the Squeeze: How
to Take Control of Your Asthma, for pre-teens and teenagers.
Based at Hasbro Children's Hospital, this is an innovative,
multifaceted education and advocacy program to assist families
and children with asthma. The goal of Draw A Breath is the same
as the National Lung and Blood Institute 1997 guidelines: for
every child with asthma and their family to have a clear,
written, physician-designed plan for asthma control.
