Seminar addresses new therapies for asthma

Asthma today afflicts one in 12 adults in the United States and every year is responsible for about 439,000 hospitalizations and 3,500 deaths. The good news is that increasingly effective asthma treatments have been developed over the years as the medical field continues to explore new treatments.

People with asthma and their loved ones are invited to attend a free seminar in Ventura on Nov. 14, when Dr. Prashant Verma, a local expert in treating people with allergies and asthma, will share information about new therapies that provide relief for children and adults suffering from asthma.

Dr. Verma received his medical degree from Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University, completed internal medicine training at the UC San Diego Medical Center and received allergy-immunology training at UCLA Veterans Affairs Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. He is board certified in internal medicine and allergy-immunology. Dr. Verma is an active member of the Community Memorial Hospital medical staff.

The Nov. 14 seminar will begin at 6 p.m. in the eighth-floor Nichols Auditorium at Community Memorial Hospital, 147 N. Brent St. Registration is free but reservations are required. For reservations, visit or call Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006.

Community Memorial Health System is a not-for-profit health system, which is comprised of Community Memorial Hospital, Ojai Valley Community Hospital, the Centers for Family Health, and various outpatient centers serving communities located within Ventura County, California.
