The Montana Asthma home visiting Program (MAP)
The Montana Asthma home visiting Program (MAP) provides free asthma education for children and their families in their homes.
Examples of topics covered in the curriculum are what asthma is, how to control your asthma, and how to avoid asthma triggers. The curriculum was developed based on medical guidelines and research from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
