Check out this great asthma video for teens – complete with an asthma rap!
Molina Healthcare, which contributes funding to our project in Detroit, is concerned about the asthma epidemic and the challenge of motivating young people to use their asthma medication regularly. Molina got a youth group involved to make this energizing video with a little medical "technical assistance" from Children’s Health Fund Chief Medical Officer Delaney Gracy, MD, as well as Dr. John Carlson of our New Orleans program.
The video explains how to use an asthma inhaler, and urges kids who have asthma to avoid triggers like pollution and tobacco smoke. It emphasizes the fact that kids with asthma don’t have to sit on the sidelines of life – they can get right in the game, even if the game is touch football!
