What you need to know

Welcome!!!


Welcome to My Blog!!

Hello and welcome to my blog…. "Asthma and Allergies…. What you need to know"

My name is Ashley Phillips and I am a community health educator with Cook County Extension. I would like to welcome you to my blog. While I never suffered from asthma or allergies myself, like many people, I have close family and friends who does. My first interest in asthma came when my 3 year old asthmatic nephew developed allergies to peanuts. One day he got ahold to some peanuts and had an allergic reaction. This caused his asthma to flare up and he had a deadly asthma attack. Fast forward about 6 years, my first job out of undergraduate school where I became an asthma educator teaching school children how to manage their asthma. It was so refreshing to talk with young children who never knew they could control their asthma. With these two incidents, my interest heighten and I decided to blog.
