Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I'm Dr. Michael Rosenthal, professor of family medicine at the Department of Family Community Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. And some of my work here centers on childhood asthma. I have a lot of interest in community-based approaches to chronic illnesses. I work with a number of colleagues and community partners to help identify children in the city that may have asthma, get them to services and care, and actually support them and their parents in their everyday lives.
