Asthma Prevention and Control

Improving the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents with asthma and reducing disparities in asthma outcomes.

Asthma is a lung disease that can make breathing difficult. Without careful management of asthma, some people can have symptoms, like a tight feeling in the chest, shortness of breath, coughing, or wheezing. Although there is no cure for asthma, people with asthma can live healthy, active lives. Well-managed asthma, including a safe and healthy environment, helps to reduce asthma symptoms.
