  • Massey University – Childhood Asthma Study (Christchurch)

Massey University is conducting a study looking at different types of asthma in children aged 14-18yrs. The aim of the study is to improve our understanding of childhood asthma, which will lead to better asthma treatment options. If you have a 14-18 year old that has asthma, we would be grateful if you consider taking part.
The study initially involves completing a postal questionnaire. On the basis of this questionnaire, we may then ask if your child can visit Christchurch Hospital for a clinical assessment. This will involve a number of tests.
If you would like to take part, or want further information about the study and the tests involved, please contact:
Jean Feary McKenzie ph. 05 08 ASTHMA or asthma@massey.ac.nz
