Patient Resources

At Partners Asthma Center we believe that the more patients and their families know about asthma, the better able they are to care for their illness and prevent serious asthmatic exacerbations. Partners Asthma Center has developed a large body of information about asthma for our patients to read, and we make this information available on-line for the general public. It includes a series of pamphlets (in English and in Spanish) on basic topics in asthma; a small, introductory book about asthma, called “Partners Asthma Center’s Guide to Asthma” (available in English and in Spanish); and a quarterly newsletter about current topics in asthma, called Breath of Fresh Air. A book written by Partners Asthma Center faculty, called the Harvard Medical School Guide to Taking Control of Asthma, was published in 2004 and is available at on-line booksellers.
