The Montana Asthma home visiting Program (MAP)
Based on both the CDC's Community Guide and on the EPR-3 asthma management guidelines, the Montana Asthma Program (MAP) is a home-based program for children and their families and includes both environmental and educational lessons.
Feel free to review the curriculum. You can learn more about the program by reading articles that were published in the Helena Independent Record and The Missoulian, or by contacting Sonja Tysk at email@example.com.
Learn more about where MAP sites are located and who is eligible for this program below.
Currently, MAP services are available through the health departments in Anaconda-Deer Lodge, Butte-Silver Bow, Cascade County, Custer County, Flathead County, Gallatin County, Lewis & Clark Public Health in Helena, Missoula County, Park County, and Richland County as well as at the Bullhook Community Health Center in Havre. These 11 sites cover 19 counties, visible in blue on the MAP below.
Clicking the image of the map will bring you to the Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Bureau's community programs page, which has information about programs in your area to address a variety of chronic health conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and pre-diabetes.
Any child aged 0-17 years with a current asthma diagnosis within a service area who has had either:
- an emergency department visit, hospitalization, or unscheduled medical office visit for asthma, OR
- an Asthma Control Test score of less than 20 in the last year.
However, children who do not meet these requirements are still eligible for MAP with a direct referral from their healthcare provider.
Complete this referral form and then send it to the asthma home visitor in your area. This brochure has contact information for all 11 sites.
