Asthma Education

Asthma education and awareness is a priority issue for the American Lung Association.  Anyone, at any age, can get asthma.

More than 15 million people in the U.S. have asthma, causing countless missed school and work days, and numerous emergency hospital visits.

While there is no cure, people with asthma can live normal, active lives with the appropriate treatment and care.

Health care professionals, people with asthma and their caregivers can learn methods to control asthma as well as the proper way to respond to asthma emergencies.
