Asthma

The Asthma Summit is a annual summit joint that is an educational collaboration between Children’s National Hospital/IMPACT DC and The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Services. As part of the Clinical Public Health program, the Summit focuses on how future clinicians can help eliminate childhood Asthma in Washington, DC.  As part of the experience, students work in groups to develop Clinical Public Health proposals with prevention strategies that address childhood asthma prevalence, attacks, and/or treatment, one of which is an Op-Ed. These Op-Eds are scored by our IMPACT team and the top 3 are published in the DC AAP’s newsletter.
