MomsTeam's goal is to provide comprehensive prevention and treatment information for sports-active children with respiratory conditions - chronic and/or caused by pollution. But to do that we are going to need your help. If you are a parent of an asthmatic athlete who is suffering or has suffered from a respiratory condition, or you are a health care professional with expertise in this area, we hope you will share your knowledge and expertise with the entire MomsTeam community of parents, coaches, administrators, athletic trainers, physicians and other health care professionals.

Please consider writing a blog, contributing an article, posting on and/or hosting a Forum, or becoming a MomsTeam expert. If you know of someone who who has knowledge to share, ask him or her to join the MomsTeam community.
