May 7, 2013. The Philippine College of Chest Physicians through the Council on Asthma celebrated World Asthma Day (WAD), an annual event organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) to improve asthma awareness and care around the world. The theme is “You Can Control Your Asthma … It’s Time To ACT”. As in the previous years, 2013’s World Asthma Day coincides with the Philippine College of Physicians (PCP) Annual Convention. As most PCCP members were attending the convention, we deemed it an opportune occasion to celebrate WAD with and promote asthma awareness to our fellow internists.
