About Us image

What We Do

At the Community Pediatric Asthma Service, our mission is to provide asthma education to pediatric asthma patients and their families in and around Calgary.  Our community outreach, health care provider education and website exist to help children with asthma manage their health and take control of their asthma, allowing them to lead full, active and normal lives. 

You may be referred to us for asthma education by:

  • your family physician or pediatrician
  • your community pharmacist
  • an Emergency Department or Urgent Care Centre if you have an asthma emergency, or
  • the Asthma Clinic at the Alberta Children's Hospital

Our Commitment

Our team of physicians and educators have developed medically accurate pediatric asthma information which is then posted to this site and distributed to community partners and physicians.  Our website is updated with relevant news items as they become available and all content, including documents and tools, are reviewed and updated annually to provide medically accurate, consistent information for our audiences.
