Special Message from the SCAAP Asthma Champion

July 12, 2013

Dear Colleagues:

It is that time again, when asthma is lying in wait for our patients.  Every year there is a major asthma flare when school restarts and no one has ever really done much about it.  Last year, a practitioner in Seneca, Dr. Carey Gully, did take the challenge of “doing something” to heart.  She and her office team developed a special asthma preparedness program during last summer.  It was so innovative that two of us from the SC Asthma Alliance interviewed her on video so that everyone can learn her innovative approach.  That video is now on this site and I strongly urge each of you to look at it to see if there is something there which you would like to adapt for your practice.  The video is only about 17 minutes.   Her numbers, 300 patients seen and trained during last summer, without a single visit to the ER or hospitalization when school started, are truly exemplary.  I hope you will take a look at the video below and see what you can incorporate into your office activities this summer.  Email me at bowmanm@musc.edu if you have any questions for me.

With best regards,

Mike Bowman, MD
SC Chapter of the AAP Asthma Champion
Head, Pediatric Pulmonology, MUSC
