Asthma Control in Teens and Young Adults - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to help young people with asthma better manage their medications in order to improve control of asthma symptoms. By improving control, we mean having fewer instances of wheezing, coughing, or chest tightness that require additional treatment by a doctor and increasing the time between asthma exacerbations.

What is the Condition Being Studied?
