Asthma Education and Self-Management Program

Learn to control your asthma so it no longer controls you. This 12-week program will teach you how to manage your asthma and practice skills to reduce chances of your asthma getting out of control. You will gain an understanding of how asthma affects breathing, how to use a peak flow meter, how to monitor your triggers, and the role and use of medications. During this series, you will develop your own asthma action plan so you can partner with your health care provider to gain the most from office visits and medications, and avoid emergencies related to your condition.
