Asthma in Imperial County
Asthma is a common health problem in Imperial County. It affects 1 in 5 children in Imperial County, which is higher than national estimates. Asthma control is influenced by many factors such as how we take care of our health, how we use asthma medication, how we control factors in and outside our home that cause asthma (known as environmental triggers), how good the care we receive from a health professional is, how clean the air we breathe is and how exposed we are to pollution.
