Impediments to education attainment in this region intersect with health issues all across the pre-natal to workforce continuum. For TCCC’s Networks, Consortia and Guiding Teams, health issues are an integral part of the work.
One of the most prominent physical health issues the impede proficiency and readiness in K-12 is asthma.
The American Lung Association in South Carolina is hosting a free asthma camp for children ages 6-13 and their parents.
At Camp Breathe Easy, South Carolina, participants will learn to manage asthma symptoms. Participants will take home peak flow meters and spacers, and there will be educational activities, giveaways and experts on-hand to answer questions. A parent or guardian is required to attend as well.
The camp will take place at Mary Ford Elementary at 3180 Thomasina McPherson Boulevard in North Charleston, on Saturday, May 19, from 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
