In this episode of Big Ideas Theater, Indy Lites Racer and Asthma Advocate TJ Fischer shares his insight and perspective on living with asthma and learning to control it.

A lifelong asthmatic, Fischer opens the discussion sharing his experience of having an asthma attack while driving in a race back in 2015. This experience later inspired Fischer to help develop Project O2, a program to help others learn how to better control their asthma in order to accomplish their passions in life.

“You don’t have to let asthma define you,” Fischer said.

Big Ideas Theater 2017 was filmed at the AARC Congress 2017 in Indianapolis, IN. Congress speakers and lecturers shared their expertise and insights during these brief interviews.
