Asthma Forum Brings Community Ideas to Life

April 27, 2009

A national forum on Communities in Action for Asthma-Friendly Environments will be held Jun 4–5 in Washington DC. Sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the conference is for anyone involved in community-based asthma programs.

The conference materials say that this is the place for asthma care leaders to learn from one another and from some of the highest performing asthma programs in the world. The Forum explores successful approaches to asthma care with leading programs, scientists, policy makers, and others; enables participants to benchmark their programs against the best national strategies for improving outcomes and sustaining their programs; and provides the access to the strategies, resources, tools and community of support to help program leaders to transform the delivery, impact, and scale of asthma care in their communities.

Some of the foremost local community asthma programs will present the agenda for the conference.

Registration materials and a full agenda are available on the EPA website.
