Kohl's Against Asthma Fair

Kohl's Department Store Mission Get Directions
American children miss about 14.4 million days of school every year due to asthma. It is only fitting that during the busiest back-to-school shopping weekend, the Edinburg Children’s Hospital Foundation and Kohl’s will team up to educate families about the symptoms, triggers, and treatments this un-curable, yet controllable disease of the airways at the Kohl’s Fights Asthma Fair.
The fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18 (during Texas Tax Free Weekend) at the Mission Kohl’s store at 2504 E. Expressway 83. The Edinburg Children’s Hospital Foundation members, pediatric nurses, and respiratory therapists from Edinburg Children’s Hospital will educate families about how to asthma-proof their homes, how to use an asthma kit, and how to build an asthma action plan in coordination with a child’s school. Free asthma kits will be available to qualified individuals, and everyone in attendance will receive asthma coloring books, pencils, and stickers.
