Asthma

Everyday tasks can seem daunting or even impossible when you have trouble breathing, but you don’t have to face these challenges alone. Hackettstown Medical Center offers a support group called Better Breathers, where patients can share personal experiences, breathing exercises and tips for controlling flare-ups in a relaxed, caring environment. Light refreshments are served and family members are welcome to attend. The group meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 1:30pm at our hospital. For more information, please call 908-441-1192.
