Image of the facilitator speaking to a group parents.Cumberland Road Elementary recently held their first Parent Wellness Session. Parents gathered to receive resources, materials, and the facts on managing a child with Asthma. One of  the School Health Advisory Council members, Holly Lawing, Pediatric Asthma Coordinator of Cape Fear Valley Medical Center led the session. One goal of the sessions is to reduce absences related to chronic diseases. Parents learned the signs and symptoms of when rescue inhalers are not enough and controlled medication should be considered. All parents received a packet containing the proper school form for an asthma medication plan, an asthma tracker booklet, and a resource guide for living with asthma. They were also able to take home necessary equipment such as spacers and nebulizer kits. The proper use of the equipment was demonstrated by Ms. Lawing. Parents were encouraged to ask specific questions and express their concerns for their child. At the conclusion of the session Kenya Mathis, 4th and 5th grade parent stated, “I loved it.”
