Two NEMG clinicians were recently featured in the Yale New Haven Health’s Managing chronic conditions at home video series. The segments cover different conditions and ways for patients to manage their care at home.

Karen Brown, MD, discussed asthma and the importance of treatment. “Untreated asthma tends to get worse,” said Brown. “It’s not just that you feel worse on any day if you’re not treating your asthma, it’s actually that asthma tends to get worse when it is not treated.” Watch the full video.

Diabetes educator Jennifer Brackett, APRN, was interviewed about the importance of medication management, dealing with stress and keeping up with routine visits during the COVID-19 pandemic. Watch the interview.
