In December 2020, the NHLBI published its first update to the asthma management guidelines in 13 years. The updated guidelines include 19 recommendations in six topic areas based on current studies.

The 2020 Focused Updates to the Asthma Management Guidelines recommend new ways to take asthma medicines and reduce indoor triggers that may change your treatment plan.

This webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • Asthma medicines – Using long-term control medicines as needed instead of daily, and single maintenance and reliever therapy (SMART)
  • Allergy shots – An option to help control allergic asthma
  • Indoor allergen reduction – Using a multi-part strategy to reduce asthma and allergy triggers in the home

The AAFA team will also answer your questions during the webinar. You’ll have a chance to submit your questions during registration.

May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. Join us for 31 Days of Action for Raising Asthma and Allergy Awareness. This year, we will be working to address widely held myths and misconceptions about asthma and allergies.
