Asthma Education, Outreach & Support

There are over 2,500 patient diagnosed with Asthma at Sixteenth Street.  We base our care on individualized Asthma Action Plans that guide our patients’ at home behavior and medication management, along with avoiding exacerbations.  Successful asthma treatment relies on medical care, proper use of medication and patient awareness of how one’s body functions and responds to various stressors. Coordination of clinical services, home visits and group and patient education help our patients self-manage their asthma.
