Nicole Cottle is organizing a free asthma camp for kids.

A physician assistant student at Quinnipiac University is offering a free asthma camp for children between the ages of 6-12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 2 on the North Haven Campus, 370 Bassett Road.

“The goal of the asthma camp is to give special attention to each child and focus on the positives of this chronic illness,” said Nicole Cottle, the physician assistant student organizing the camp as part of her being named a Paul Ambrose Scholar. “I believe the camp will be a great success for the underserved children of the greater New Haven area.”

The camp will include a range of activities, including ones that will teach the children how to manage their asthma, a lifelong disease that causes wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness and coughing.
