If you get wheezy with exertion or have a persistent cough, you may have Asthma, which is when your lungs are over-sensitive. Regular reviews (to ‘fine tune’ your medication) will help you feel much better, sleep better and take less time off work.

The Exercise Class meets every Wednesday at 12:00pm.
The Breathe Easy Support Group in Lewisham meets every 2nd Thursday of every month.
