Asthma Program Home

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory lung disease and the most common long-term chronic disease in children. Nearly 7 percent of children in Texas - more than 492,000 - have asthma.1 We provide information on managing asthma and asthma triggers. We also offer resources on how to manage the disease before, during and after a natural disaster.
