Free classes in Hesperia show how to manage children's asthma
(HESPERIA, Calif.) – LaSalle Medical Associates will hold free classes to teach parents how to manage their children’s asthma. Children are also welcome to attend.
The classes take place Wednesday, April 30 at the LaSalle Medical Associates clinic in Hesperia, 16455 Main Street. LaSalle Medical Associates offers a 10 a.m. class in Spanish, and a 1 p.m. class in English.
“This class educates parents about the signs and symptoms of asthma,” said Dr. Albert Arteaga, president of LaSalle Medical Associates. “Most children with asthma can live completely normal lives, so long as it is treated with the proper medication and the adults around them know what to do in an emergency.”
The course will educate parents about asthma triggers, medications and methods of delivery, and now to react properly in an emergency situation. All participants will receive a free pillow encasement to help protect an asthmatic child from harmful dust mites.
The classes are co-sponsored by the American Lung Association of California.
