Jefferson Hosts “Breathe Well” Asthma Workshop

March 13, 2017 – In an effort to educate and spread awareness about asthma among our parents, the Bakersfield City School District partnered with Kern Family Health Care for an educational workshop at Jefferson Elementary.  The topics presented included managing symptoms, responding to an asthma emergency, common triggers, and medications.

Several attendees shared their own experiences of raising children with asthma. Many parents asked questions and their feedback of the event was so positive. Kern Family Health hopes to continue offering these workshops to BCSD parents.
