Older Adults Living with Asthma

OLLI is pleased to bring the Community Asthma and Air Quality Resource Education (CAARE) Program as a public service event to CSUDH. The program "strives to improve the health and well-being of adults and seniors with asthma, and assist residents in Long Beach, Wilmington, and Carson, in reducing and/or eliminating indoor and outdoor air pollutants that may contribute to asthma, allergies, and other respiratory illnesses." The two-hour workshop, conducted by Kathy Estrada, provides information about indoor and outdoor air quality issues, indoor and outdoor environmental health hazards, non-toxic cleaning agents and methods, and basic information about asthma and allergies. The workshop includes demonstrations of cleaning products and a raffle drawing. Additionally, the CAARE program offers In-Home Adult Asthma Case Management and an Asthma Information Hotline.

Please join us with your guests for this important and informative workshop! Refreshments provided.
