There are over one million Canadians over the age of 50 living with asthma.
Older adults face unique challenges in managing asthma, and often disproportionately bear the burden of asthma. Some of the common challenges include misdiagnosis and under-treatment, confounding co-morbidities, severe asthma and accessibility barriers.
On Friday, December 6 at 1 PM EDT, Asthma Canada will be hosting a Webinar on Living Well with Asthma as an Older Adult.
This webinar is tailored towards older adults who have had asthma all their lives, or have been diagnosed with adult onset asthma later in life, and caregivers of older adults with asthma.
What you’ll take away:
Our webinar will include a Question & Answer session with the guest speakers, giving you the opportunity to ask pressing questions to two of Canada’s leading experts. Don’t miss out!
