Galveston County Daily News (Internet / Print) 05/21/06 A DVD produced by the University of Texas Medical Branch attempts to teach children with asthma across Texas how to gain better control over their disease. These lessons were originally developed for UTMB’s Camp RAD, a weeklong summer camp founded in 1993 for children with asthma aged 7 to 12 years. Children who attend camp report fewer emergency room visits and fewer missed school days on average, and parents report these children are more active and more willing to take their medications, according to statistics gathered by Anne Meng, UTMB special programs coordinator for Women’s, Infant’s & Children’s Nursing and founder and director for Camp RAD. “The camp has been very successful, and we’re so grateful to the Eagles for helping us bring this program to children who can’t attend Camp RAD,” said Meng.
