Twitter Party Recap: Asthma and the Family

Last Friday, we held our third Twitter party to great success! We had more participants than ever which means we’re reaching more people than ever before. It’s so great to watch people connect (with both asthma specialists and fellow asthma sufferers).

As we discussed how asthma affects our families, we touched on a lot of important topics. Our co-host Lillian Cohen-Moore talked about her diagnosis in college, as well as how her parents educated her to be confident in her personal care.

 

 

 

Triggers are another important aspect in your asthma treatment. Dr. Nathan Hare pointed out that asthma patients are very likely to have allergic triggers:

 

 

 

Being confident in your own management of your asthma and knowing your triggers are key to developing your asthma action plan. As pointed out by Lorene Alba, being confident and seeking help when necessary is key, not just to your treatment, but to your life.

 

 

 

We hope you’ll join us June 22nd for our next chat! In the meantime, let we’d love to know: How does asthma affect your family? And how do you manage your triggers?

 

Family, Asthma, and the Power of Twitter

How does asthma affect your family?Asthma doesn’t just affect the individual, it affects the entire family. Whether it’s your child,  your husband, your sister, or your mom: When you have asthma, those around you all feel it in some way.

Tonight we’ll be diving into how asthma affects families on our bi-weekly #BeatingAsthma Twitter chat.

In tonight’s chat we’ll have two guests on board Lillian Cohen-Moore (@lilyorit), a journalist and asthma sufferer, and Dr. Nathan Hare (@AllergyTalk), an asthma specialist and founder of NathanHare.com, a website dedicated to allergy and asthma.

How has asthma affected your family? I hope you’ll join us and share your experiences, as well as your questions.

Kids and Asthma Twitter Party: Recap!

Our Friday night Twitter party for kids and asthma was an informative hour and we’re really looking forward to our next chat on May 18th!

Quite a bit of the hour was spent discussing the nitty gritty of when to (and how to) contact an allergy and asthma specialist.

Dr. A noted that he often encounters families who have pushed for some time to get their physician to refer their case to an asthma or allergy specialist. There are many times when a trip to the allergist merely confirms what the parents already knew: Their child has asthma.

Once you’ve made the decision to see an allergist and asthma specialist, there’s much more work ahead! Finding the right doctor for you and your family can be very challenging. Some of the great advice shared included:

We’re really looking forward to our next chat! Have ideas for a topic? Let us know!

Kids and Asthma Twitter Party

With the success of our allergy and asthma Twitter party, we’ve decided that we’re going to host a chat every other Friday throughout May to raise awareness!

This Friday is a topic that is especially important: Children and asthma.

Do you have questions for Dr. A. about asthma and your children? Let us know!
