I’m Dr. Floyd Malveaux with the Merck Childhood Asthma Network (MCAN). We are focused on enhancing access to quality asthma care and management for children in the U.S. As a nation, we cannot continue to approach childhood asthma the same old way and expect to reverse the fact that one in every 11 children suffers from it and the asthma disparities that exist in many communities. To effectively manage this chronic disease requires careful alignment of different touch points in a child’s life: in the doctor's office, at school, at home and even on Capitol Hill. Use this new MCAN infographic, Putting Together the Pieces to Manage Childhood Asthma, to tell the real asthma story and raise awareness about the puzzle pieces that need to come together for real solutions.
