“Dr Richard Fulton our local pediatrician from Edgewood Pediatric Services will also present on “Exercise Induced Asthma”. What is exercise induced asthma and how should we treat it? It is so important that children with asthma are not excluded from sports or other activities.

“Allergies are rising and may affect as many as one third of the population. Why are they rising? We are not completely sure but there are several theories. The important thing is to get the right information, nowadays we can all google a topic but are we getting the correct advice?

“Open Airways has sponsored this event to bring international experts to Bermuda who can share up to date accurate advice on asthma and allergies. Come and learn about eczema, food allergies, allergy testing and asthma.”
