High-Risk Asthma Program
Meet the Team
Our pulmonary medicine physicians collaborate with other specialties, such as allergy, to provide the highest-quality care to children with asthma. Our integrated team of physicians, pediatric nurse practitioners and pediatric nursing staff seamlessly coordinate to provide care and treatment plans. The program consists of two pediatric pulmonologists, a pulmonary APN, a pediatric allergist, two pediatric nurses, a social worker, a respiratory therapist, and an administrative coordinator.
The High-Risk Asthma Program at Lurie Children's is led by Avani V. Shah, MD, Attending Physician, Pulmonary Medicine. Dr. Shah is board-certified in pediatric pulmonology and pediatrics.
