Some of you may be hoping August never ends. Others are glad it’s coming to a close. Either way, there are just a few short days left in the month of August. It’s time to give shout-outs to our favorite blog posts during the month, written by these new Air Quality Evangelists!
Dr. Craig Canapari
It’s not every day you come across a pediatrician with a blog. But then, Dr. Craig Canapari isn’t your average pediatrician. He specializes in children with breathing and sleep problems, like asthma, sleep apnea, and muscular dystrophy. His blog posts include unbelievable stories and insight into the lives of these children and their parents.
Winning Post: Probably the best word to describe Dr. Canapari’s blog is “uplifting.” This post embodies that word. Parents of children with asthma often fear their child won’t be able to succeed in athletics, or even compete against non-asthmatic kids. In this post, inspired by the major success of Olympic athletes with respiratory issues, Dr. Canapari explains exactly why asthma won’t keep your kids out of the Olympics.
