Learn More about Allergy and Asthma
The Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Division at Children’s Hospital of Michigan at the Detroit Medical Center has a long history of excellence in care for asthmatic, allergic and immune deficient children.
The high risk asthma clinic is supported by a grant from Children’s Hospital Foundation offering medical and psychosocial support to children with severe and/or high risk asthma. Research studies with emphasis on assistance with adherence to medication and identification of stressors that influence asthma are available to those clients, and any other interested families with asthmatics.
The asthma and allergy physicians on staff and asthma nurse educators see every asthmatic patient admitted to the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. This assures that all asthmatic children and families are offered the highest standard of care for their asthma, with particular emphasis to follow-up daily care, education, and action planning.
The asthma and allergy clinic at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan is offered at several convenient locations in metropolitan Detroit. Outpatient care is available morning and afternoon everyday Monday through Friday at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit. The clinic treats children and adults for allergic disorders and asthma.
