Asthma is a chronic lung disease, also known as reactive airway disease. Asthma symptoms can include wheezing, tight chest and shortness of breath. The good news is that with good medical care, the right asthma medications and proper monitoring, you can keep asthma under control.
In Denver, Colorado, and around the country, National Jewish Health is the trusted leader in caring for patients with moderate or severe asthma. In 2016, we created The Cohen Family Asthma Institute to address the need for severe asthma care, research and education. Our multidisciplinary team treats all aspects of asthma. Whether you have mild, moderate or severe asthma, we have a wide range of individualized asthma treatment programs to help you.
Our doctors are researchers, too, so you have access to the latest asthma clinical trials and most effective treatments.
