KERA NEWS: Childhood asthma seeing some improvement, Dallas County hospital says

Dr. Yolande Pengetnze

KERA News is reporting that from June 2020 to May 2022, there were 36% fewer emergency department visits for asthma among children in the program, compared to children with similar asthma risk whose families did not get the texts.

“Asthma is a lifelong disease,” Dr. Yolande Pengetnze of PCCI told KERA. “However, it is controllable. And once it’s controlled, you can lead a normal life without having to think about asthma.”
