The Children’s Colorado asthma treatment programs also include the Multidisciplinary Asthma Clinic. The Multidisciplinary Asthma Clinic began in 2015, focusing on children with severe, difficult to treat asthma who may benefit from a shared pulmonary and allergy appointment. Patients also have the opportunity to meet with social work, nutrition and speech therapy.

Providers and clinic staff assist with any areas that may trigger the patient’s asthma, including the environment, home, school and barriers to getting and taking medication. These appointments are held in the Multidisciplinary Clinic on the second floor of the Anschutz Medical Campus.

We gladly accept referrals from across the nation.
