Asthma Can Be Controlled !

Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases among children and youth in the United States. Nearly 5 million asthma sufferers are under the age of 18.1 One out of ten children have asthma.2  People with low-income, minorities, and children living in inner cities experience more emergency department visits and hospitalizations than the general population.3
Every day in America, 44,000 people have an asthma attack, 36,000 children miss school, 27,000 adults miss work, 4,700 people visit the emergency room due to asthma, and 1,200 people are admitted to the hospital.4  Good asthma control means no missed days of school or work, no emergency department visits, and no limitations on your daily activities.
