The asthma management program is a free service provided to children and adults diagnosed with asthma. The purpose of the program is to provide patient and family education, an asthma symptom severity assessment, referral to an asthma/allergy specialist if needed, and to work in collaboration with the patient’s physician to develop an asthma control plan when symptoms occur.

Through the use of peak flow meter monitoring, patients and their families can monitor daily peak flow readings and take immediate action when readings drop or symptoms increase. A case manager can provide ongoing contact and assessment to keep patients and their families up to date with the latest treatments, recommendations and information about asthma.
