Community Asthma Prevention Program (CAPP)

The Community Asthma Prevention Program (CAPP) offers free asthma education classes in familiar environments, such as schools, churches, daycare centers and community centers throughout the city. Classes are structured so both caregivers and children with asthma can learn simultaneously.
