AH! Asthma Health Program


Description

The goal of the AH! (Asthma Health) Program is to improve the quality of life for people with asthma living in Maine. AH! emphasizes the importance of education and self-care, and the coordination of asthma care between people with asthma and their families; the asthma educator; and the physicians, nurses, and practitioners who provide medical care. People in the AH! Program experience fewer hospitalizations and emergency room visits, and fewer days missed from work and school due to asthma.

The AH! Program Web site provides the following resources:
  • Directory of asthma education services available through the AH! Program
  • Patient and family education materials (adults and children)
  • Maine asthma action management plan
  • Maine asthma plan for childcare/preschool and family
