Module 4—Learning more about environmental triggers

In this video, we provide a brief overview of the prevalent airborne allergens & irritants that may impact a child’s asthma and discuss the merits of skin testing vs blood testing in assessing a child’s sensitivities for a tailored asthma counseling intervention (as was offered under the CHAMPS program).
