Presentation > Physicians from Children’s Clinic to team up with Assets In Action program

By Bernadette Lauritzen

On Tuesday, the public can get twice the advice for free as Dr. Mike Nichols and Patricia McCulloch, PA, host a free presentation on asthma and allergies, 6 p.m. at Mesa Public Library.
The presentation is second in a list of topics, is through the dual efforts of the Children’s Clinic of Los Alamos and the Assets in Action program, a program of the JJAB.
The free library presentations allow both agencies to present educational information for parents to use throughout the year.
“We would like to focus on the causes and triggers of asthma, especially allergy induced asthma in New Mexico, as it affects a large portion of the pediatric population,” Nichols said. “We also plan to discuss treatment options for allergies and asthma.”
Allergies and allergy induced asthma in New Mexico generally peak during the spring and fall pollen seasons and juniper is a major allergen for a lot of northern New Mexico kids, according to Nichols.
Dr. Nichols came to the Children’s Clinic for a six-week rotation as a medical student in 1978 and fell in love with Los Alamos and the way that pediatrics was practiced at the Children’s Clinic.
“As soon as I completed my pediatrics residency, my wife and I moved to Los Alamos and I’ve been a pediatrician here since 1982,” he said.
