Resources for Asthma Patients

At Mass General Brigham 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.

Our 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, and a small, introductory book about asthma, called “Asthma Center’s Guide to Asthma” (available in English and in Spanish). A book written by our Asthma Center faculty, called the “Harvard Medical School Guide to Taking Control of Asthma,” was published and is available at on-line booksellers.

 Please contact us for a copy of the Asthma Center’s Guide to Asthma.

Organizations & informational resources

We have also compiled a helpful list of asthma specialty-specific organizations and informational resources to help you or your loved one understand the many aspects of asthma. This list is not intended to be a comprehensive listing. Rather, we hope that these links together with information presented on our site might assist you as starting your pursuit of information about asthma and related diseases. Please note, the following pages are not maintained by the Asthma Center. We are not responsible for any information found in them.
