Description of the Windsor Allergy Asthma Education Centre
The Windsor Allergy Asthma Education Centre (WAAEC) was founded by Dr. Joel Liem and established on July 1, 2006. As a result of a close partnership between Windsor Allergy Asthma Associates and various pharmaceutical companies, the primary objective of this charity is to improve the quality of life of asthmatic, allergic and anaphylactic patients in Windsor and Essex County.
What Does Windsor Allergy Asthma Education Centre Offer?
The Windsor Allergy Asthma Education Centre offers free preschool, family, teen and one-on-one adult educational sessions to patients referred to the Centre by their physician. The sessions are taught by medical professionals who volunteer their time to ensure that patients understand concepts of allergies, asthma, anaphylaxis, triggers and medication use.
