Colorado Asthma Toolkit: The Colorado Asthma Toolkit Program (CATP) seeks to build greater capacity in primary healthcare settings to effectively treat asthma. CATP has successfully trained 100 primary care practices in Colorado, mostly in rural areas and all providing care to medically underserved patients. The Pediatric Day Program is a unique, comprehensive program in which patients and their families participate in appointments, disease management and therapeutic activities throughout the day.

Step Up Program: There are over 5,000 students in the Denver Public Schools who have asthma. There are also students who are undiagnosed. Asthma is the number one reason for school absence for students with chronic disease in the nation. The Denver Public Schools Asthma Program will help students with asthma stay healthy and stay in school.
