We are a network of young people working together to improve asthma research. We have all been affected by asthma in some way, either through having it or having a friend or sibling with asthma.
Getting involved means helping other young people through asthma research better.
There are a lot of reasons to get involved. You can:
Researchers want to hear what we think of their ideas or how they could better solve problems that affect us when we’re dealing with our asthma. Our main job is to offer advice and ideas. We use email, Facebook, or meet in person to work together with researchers.
Our group is led by a group of researchers, nurses and other people with asthma. Melissa is a researcher that helps get people involved in research. Ann is a local Asthma Nurse at Sick Kids. And Olivia is a young woman who has asthma herself, and also works as a community based nurse.
