The American Lung Association of New Jersey implemented Asthma and Your Family/El Asma y Su Familia in 2002 to improve the health of Latino children (5-13 years) with asthma in New Jersey.

Asthma and Your Family/El Asma y Su Familia is a bilingual asthma education video for families who have children with asthma. The program is an excellent adjunct to medical care or health education programs, and is designed to work in conjunction with a physician or health care provider visit. The video is directed to the Latino population and includes up-to-date information on pathophysiology, triggers, environmental controls, medications and  treatment/management. The video is used as a learning tool in physician's offices, pediatric clinics and schools.

An evaluation of the Asthma and Your Family/El Asma y Su Familia video in New Jersey demonstrated an improvement in self management skills for children and their families six months after viewing the video. Copies of the video are available from local offices of the American Lung Association.
