Medikidz Explain Asthma Comic Book Launch Free Event!

Medikidz Explain Asthma Comic Book Launch Free Event!

When I was in middle school, I was diagnosed with asthma. I am thankfully asthma free now but it was a scary time as a kid. I also know of other friends who had it so bad they couldn’t be very active at all for fear it could every hurt them. 

I remember going through this and not really knowing what was happening to me or why. My parents also did not have many resources and this was before the Google thing became so popular 😉 

When I heard about this new initiative from AANMA I knew I had to share. This would have come in handy for my middle school self! Readers who are local to Washington DC you have to check this out!

Medikidz Comic Book Launch

On Fri., May 8, the Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA) – in partnership with Medikidz USA and Meda Pharmaceuticals – will launch the first in a three-part comic book series, furthering their commitment to educational efforts that support the asthma community. Register for this FREE event 

The MediKidz superheroes are experts in health and illness, and their mission is to teach children about their body and how illness affects it. The comic book format allows parent to have a fun, engaging discussion with their children about their disease, the causes and triggers. As part of Meda’s ongoing commitment to the asthma community, “Medikidz Explain Asthma” is the first in a three-part series of educational comic books aimed at educating and engaging parents and their children.

Medikidz Comic Book Launch

 

I have previewed the new comics and they are fun and educational. My kids loved these new superheroes and it opened the door to talk to about asthma with them, and signs to look for if they should ever feel as if an attack was happening. We cannot wait to see what else the Medikidz Heroes will get into in the upcoming issues!
