Mario Castro MD, MPH

Asthma can be a manageable condition, when diagnosed and treated properly. In this program, real patient, Andrew, shares his story about how pulmonary specialist, Dr. Mario Castro, M.D., M.P.H., with Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, found the answers he desperately needed to get his severe asthma under control.
Physicians across many practice areas see these patients come through their practice, and this program is intended to help raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of severe asthma – including unmanageable symptoms, such as recurring colds, chest tightness and persistent cough — and specifically, the involvement of eosinophils, in both proper diagnosis and treatment of some severe asthma patients.
View this program now, as it may help someone you know with severe asthma get back to living their life.
This health initiative has been brought to you by the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders, a non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of those living with eosinophilic disorders, and a generous grant provided by Teva.
