Pediatric Asthma Program & Clinic
Hurley Medical Center is a leader in the state of Michigan when it comes to pediatric asthma care.
Hurley Asthma Clinic
The doctors and respiratory therapists at the Hurley Asthma Clinic work with you and your family as a team to manage your asthma. We examine you to find out as much as we can about your asthma. We help you understand how to use your inhaler the right way. We visit your home and show you and your family how to take away triggers that might cause an asthma attack. And we always keep in touch with you to see how you are doing. For more information or to make an appointment, call the Hurley Asthma Clinic at (810) 262-2130.
Hurley Asthma Camp
Even with asthma, you can exercise just like any other kid. This camp will teach you how. Hurley doctors and nurses will show you how to take your medicine and avoid asthma triggers. After this camp, you will feel better and have confidence about playing sports.

Genesee County Asthma Network
The Genesee County Asthma Network, directed by Michelle Cox, RRT, is a team of many different people who want to reduce asthma in this community. Teachers, parents, pharmacists, doctors, and school nurses are all part of this network. Because it’s a team working together, it can get things that people with asthma need, such as beds, a new bathroom — even a new house. For more information about the Genesee County Asthma Network, use the information above to contact one of the Hurley Asthma Disease Managers.

Michigan School Inhaler Law (this is current law 2020)
Legislation allowing Michigan public and nonpublic school children, under certain conditions, to carry and self-administer prescribed asthma and allergy medications on school grounds and during school sponsored activities was amended to the Michigan School Code in 2000 and 2004. This ensures that students with asthma and allergies have immediate access to life-saving medications. For more information, visit getasthmahelp.org.
