- Ways of incorporating social & historical content into teaching asthma in ward settings. This session will be of interest to faculty in the Respiratory block/course, and those who treat and teach about asthma in clerkship contexts (Peds, ED, ICUs). This session should also be of interest to faculty who teach other organ systems as well, who want
to think about thickening social dimensions of their clinical and bioscience lessons.
