Children of the National Asthma Center Perform Gymnastics, between 1970-1980
Two unidentified boys from the National Asthma Center perform gymnastics. An unidentified woman watches them while kneeling on the floor with exercise mats. The National Asthma Center's history began in 1907 as the Denver Sheltering Home for Jewish Children, which was a refuge for lower-income children whose parents were being treated for tuberculosis, or had passed away from tuberculosis. In 1928 the institution changed names to the National Home for Jewish Children in Denver. In 1953, the name changed to the Jewish National Home for Asthmatic Children at Denver and the institution became a treatment center for children with asthma. In 1957, the name changed again, to the Children's Asthma Research Institute and Hospital (CARIH). In 1973, the name National Asthma Center was adopted and in 1978 the National Asthma Center merged with the National Jewish Health Hospital and Research Center to become the National Jewish Health Hospital/National Asthma Center (NJH/NAC).
