Choosing Children's National Hospital for Asthma Care

IMPACT DC’s three focus areas: Asthma Care and Education, Outreach, and Research

    The heart of the program is the IMPACT DC Asthma Clinic. The clinic sees children who have recently been to the emergency room, were hospitalized for asthma or who generally have trouble controlling their asthma.

    When you and your child visit the clinic, our team of asthma educators and clinicians will provide detailed medical consultation and a unique care plan for your child. We then communicate and coordinate care with your child’s primary care provider, school nurse and others involved in your child’s asthma care.

    IMPACT DC asthma educators provide individualized education on asthma and medications, while showing children and families how to best use inhalers and other devices. We also explain how to identify and reduce exposure to allergens or other triggers that may cause asthma symptoms.
