Resources for Healthcare Providers 

 Doctors and Nurses

Our goal is to educate all healthcare providers on “best practices” for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of asthma using the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP)guidelines as well as ensure that people with asthma have an appropriate, coordinated system to access primary and specialty care.

Below is a list of resources for healthcare providers to learn more about asthma so they can better help their patients who have asthma:

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI): National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP)

National Asthma Educator Certification Board (NAECB)-Learn how you can become a certified asthma educator or find an asthma educator

American Lung Association (ALA)
Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA)
Connecticut Children's Medical Center (CCMC)
