About AH! Asthma Health Program

"Asthma doesn't seem to bother me any more unless I'm around cigars or dogs. The thing that would bother me most would be a dog smoking a cigar."  - Steve Allen, Founder of the Tonight Show

The AH! Asthma Health Program is a community approach to managing asthma. Our educators focus on patients, families and providers to create well informed families and teach medication use in accordance with treatment and management guidelines established by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute.

The goal of our program? To improve the quality of life for Maine residents with asthma. People actively involved in the AH! Program experience less emergency room visits and school/work days missed due to asthma.

We provide information about managing and treating asthma including our guide:
"Living Well With Asthma."

 If You Have Asthma, Be Sure To:

  • Get a flu shot every fall. Flu symptoms can make your asthma worse.

  • Talk to your doctor about seeing an asthma educator to review your asthma plan and get tips on how to live a healthy and active life with asthma.

  • If you smoke cigarettes, think about quitting. Even second-hand smoke can make asthma worse for you and those around you. If you're not ready to quit, smoke only outside your home or car. Find out how to get help with quitting from the Maine Tobacco HelpLine, 800-207-1230.
