About Lungtropolis®

Developed by ORCAS in collaboration with the American Lung Association, Lungtropolis® is a powerful, inexpensive tool for giving parents and children the information and guidance they need to manage asthma.

In the Lungtropolis® Kids
game, children become "Asthma Control Agents" under the tutelage of Dr.
Alvi Olé as they fight to defeat the Mucus Mob. As part of the game,
players watch videos and answer questions to help them learn about
asthma and how to manage it.

Lungtropolis® Parents
is a companion site that offers caregivers comprehensive information
and resources to understand and help manage a child's asthma, such as
advice on using asthma medicines and what to do in an emergency, as well
as tips on how to talk to their medical provider-and their child-about
managing asthma.
