National Jewish Takes Asthma Expertise To Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Oct. 26-Nov. 2

The world’s leading asthma research and treatment center and an Arizona health resort known as a worldwide leader in healthy living awareness and education are teaming to offer a week-long Adult Asthma Week from Sunday, Oct. 26-Sunday, Nov. 2.

Internationally-known asthma experts from National Jewish will meet with participants to discuss the latest treatments and research in asthma. In addition, National Jewish and Canyon Ranch physicians and health experts will conduct one-on-one consultations, group discussions and workshops to teach more efficient ways to manage the disease.

The week-long cooperative program was developed in 1996 by National Jewish physicians and Mel Zuckerman, Canyon Ranch founder, as a forum to educate people with asthma about how to take control of their condition. Zuckerman, an asthmatic since childhood, had always believed that exercise would cause an asthma attack. For 40 years, asthma controlled his life and severely restricted his activities until he learned how to manage it. Now 68, Zuckerman says that for the past 19 years he’s led an active, healthy life by making appropriate lifestyle changes and taking proper medications. Established in 1899, National Jewish treats the most severe cases of asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema, and other respiratory and immune system diseases. Approximately 14 million people in the United States have asthma. Canyon Ranch is known worldwide as a leader in healthy living awareness and education. Canyon Ranch is located at 8600 E. Rockcliff Road, in Tucson, Ariz.Adult Asthma Week rates start at $2,640 per person. Financial assistance is available for some participants. For information on how to qualify, call (800) 726-3335. Adult Asthma Week includes accommodations for seven nights, three nutritionally balanced, gourmet meals each day, full use of spa and resort facilities, a selection of Canyon Ranch services, a physician evaluation, all related Adult Asthma Week lectures and presentations, and more. For reservation information, call Canyon Ranch, (800) 726-9900.
