May is Asthma Awareness Month
(5/1/2013) Asthma is a continuing challenge in New Haven. The prevalence of asthma in New Haven is not substantially higher than statewide average; however, New Haven, along with other large CT cities, has among the highest incidence of hospital admission and Emergency Department visits for asthma in the state. In addition, the likelihood of asthma triggers in New Haven homes is substantially increased due to approximately 82% of housing units being constructed prior to 1979.
This is indicative of the importance of controlling asthma triggers and enhancing asthma management within the City.
