More than 25 million Americans live with asthma. The chronic lung disease causes millions of lost workdays and results in more than 180,000 hospitalizations each year. To improve the lives of adults living with asthma, the American Lung Association, in collaboration with the CVS Health Foundation, launched the new “Improving Asthma for All” program.
