Overview

Childhood asthma is an epidemic in Duval County. More than six million children under the age of 18 in the U.S. suffer from asthma-that’s an average of one out of every 10 school-age children. Not surprisingly, asthma is the number-one reason children miss school and, subsequently, their parents miss work.

In Jacksonville’s 2013 and 2016 Community Health Needs Assessments, uncontrolled asthma was one of the top pediatric health concerns discussed by external community members and internal hospital staff.

The Community Asthma Partnership at Wolfson (CAP-W) is working to reverse this trend. CAP-W, a leading resource in our community for information and assistance in managing childhood asthma, offers programs and services to help children, families, educators, health providers and other members of the community, better manage this life-threatening condition.

CAPW is here to help you.
