In-Home Adult Asthma Program

The In-Home Adult Asthma Program is a free program which uses home visits by an Asthma educated professional and a home environmental specialist to improve control of Asthma symptoms. The program is modeled after evidence-based programs, which have been shown to decrease hospital visits, use of emergency room, unplanned doctor visits, missed days of school/work, and to increase self-reported quality of life.
