Community Asthma Programs

Hasbro Children's Hospital

Hasbro Children's Hospital includes a number of community-based asthma education, management, support and advocacy programs designed to improve the health and quality of life of children with asthma.

Our programs all share a common goal: to assist families in developing the knowledge and skills to advocate for their children's health and successfully manage asthma.

Our community asthma programs are housed within the department of pediatrics at Hasbro Children's Hospital.
