The sessions are open to parents and caregivers of any child with asthma. Children may attend the sessions if they are five years of age or older and accompanied by at least one parent. Families may call 314.454.KIDS or 800.678.KIDS to register. Pre-registration is required. Room numbers and directions are mailed with registration confirmations.
