The Buzz on "Asthma Blues"®
Blues” brings new power to the core messages we need to deliver to ALL children and youths with asthma. Through “Asthma
Blues”, Al Keith has provided an exciting new media for raising asthma literacy in America. His music brings fun and
greater effectiveness to asthma education. I believe we are far more likely to change behavior and promote appropriate self-care
actions among kids and adults by adding “Asthma Blues” to our "educator toolkit".

“While asthma is very much
a disease of inflammation, its successful management is very much a matter of communication. Al Keith and CTK provide a remarkably
relevant tool kit to foster effective asthma education in an age-appropriate and culturally relevant manner. This tool
kit is aimed at our most vulnerable patients...the young children who suffer so much from a disease poorly understood and
therefore, poorly managed.”
