Asthma Awareness Month

NVHD Celebrates Asthma Awareness Month

Posted on May 13, 2014

In the United States alone, almost 7 million children have asthma. Asthma continues to be one of the most common serious chronic childhood diseases. In addition, asthma is a leading cause of hospital emergency department visits and school absenteeism. Asthma is a serious chronic respiratory disease that causes increased sensitivity in the airways leading to the lungs. People diagnosed with asthma should have an Asthma Action Plan. The Naugatuck Valley Health District offers “Putting on AIRS”, an in-home educational program funded through the Connecticut State Department of Public Health. Putting on AIRS is designed to help families of children with asthma understand how to identify, reduce/eliminate indoor asthma triggers and educated on asthma as a chronic disease, and the medications that control and or rescue asthma symptoms. The Naugatuck Valley Health District office is located at 98 Bank Street, Seymour, and serves residents of the municipalities of Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Derby, Naugatuck, Seymour and Shelton. For more information please call Naugatuck Valley Health District at 881-3255, Monday – Friday between 8:30 and 4:00 p.m. For the full press release, click below:
