Maryland Health is encouraging all residents to have an Asthma Action Plan. The message comes after Governor Moore recently named May as Asthma Awareness Month in Maryland. Health officials urge everyone to monitor their air quality while also reducing asthma triggers in their homes. Data shows that more than 29-thousand emergency room visits in 2018 were asthma-related. New studies also reveal that Maryland black children visit the E-R more often than white children for asthma-related issues.
