Health Tips

Asthma is a treatable, reversible condition that affects more than 25 million people in the United States. Appropriate medication management for patients with asthma reduces the need for rescue medication—as well as ER visits and missed days of work or school. Talk to your doctor about an asthma action plan and take all your prescribed asthma medications.
