Asthma is growing at epidemic proportions, particularly in urban areas like ours. An estimated half-million New Yorkers have asthma - the country's highest rate. Approximately 130,000 of these are schoolchildren; the condition is the leading cause of school absenteeism. In an effort to protect youngsters from a growing threat, the Brooklyn Children's Museum is devoting the first weekend in May to the launch of "Asthma/Allergy Awareness Month". On Saturday May 2, from 10am to 3pm and on Sunday May 3, from 10am to 2pm, there will be refreshments, balloons, guest speakers, live entertainment, pediatricians on hand to anser questions, and demonstrations of an intercative CD-ROM that enables children to learn about the triggers of asthma and how to breathe more easily. Admission will be free.

The education initiative will contine throughout the month at the museum, 145 Brooklyn Avenue.
