Spring is here and summer is fast approaching. One topic people may not associate with this time of year is asthma. New Hampshire’s Public Health Director Dr. José Montero joins WMUR-TV for their “Monthly Checkup” to share some important information about asthma management.

Asthma can start at any age. Although there is no cure for asthma, it can be managed so people with the disease can live a normal, healthy life. If you or someone you know has asthma and would like to learn more about it, the American Lung Association invites you to participate in their new online learning module, Asthma Basics.

If you or someone you know has a child with asthma, Lungtropolis is a website parents and children can visit together where you’ll find advise for parents with children with asthma as well as action-packed games designed to help kids ages five to ten control their asthma.
