The Connection between Asthma and Toxic Stress

A webinar presented by the National Committee on Asthma and Toxic Stress (NCATS) in partnership with the Center for Youth Wellness, the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford Medical Center.

Currently, there are no standard asthma management guidelines that account for the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress on asthma, leaving underserved communities particularly vulnerable to increased risk and severity. Children for whom ACEs and asthma co-occur may ultimately require different prevention and intervention strategies due to their ACEs-related physiology. As more pediatric clinics screen for ACEs, the field needs consensus and management guidelines that address the biological links between adversity and health outcomes.

In this presentation, we’ll share our insights on the links between asthma and toxic stress in children and caregivers, the importance of positive experiences, the gaps in current asthma management guidelines and ways the science of asthma and toxic stress can be used to create future, robust management guidelines.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Doctors; nurses; physician’s assistants; pulmonologists; psychiatrists; psychologists; licensed therapists; social workers; community workers; parents of children with asthma; patients with asthma; anyone working in health care, trauma, human services, and social services from the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors.
