Breeze Against Wheeze

We are a group of medical students who are continuing the Brown tradition of supporting children with asthma and promoting asthma-related health education. We are grateful for Brown and the local community businesses and organizations that work with us each year to support this worthy cause.

The Community Asthma Program

The Community Asthma Program is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary educational program based at Hasbro Children’s Hospital. It provides children and their families with the knowledge and resources necessary to manage pediatric asthma. The Asthma Camp, a component of the Community Asthma Program, is a camp for Rhode Island boys and girls, ages 9-13, who have been diagnosed with moderate or severe asthma and who are often in financial need. The camp will be held at Camp Canonicus in Exeter, Rhode Island. At the camp, children learn how to control their asthma under the guidance of physicians, therapists, and EMTs. Additionally, they have the opportunity to share ideas and concerns about asthma with each other while participating in fun outdoor activities to build self-reliance and confidence. For more information, please contact 401-444-8340.
