Do You Have An Asthma Educator Near You?

Every person with asthma should have a written Asthma Action Plan.

An Action Plan is a guide for you to follow in case your asthma symptoms become worse. If you have asthma, please see your family doctor, Respirologist or Certified Asthma Educator for your personal Action Plan.

Following is a list of asthma education resources throughout B.C. Please check back for additional and updated information on these resources.
