Partners for Asthma Action

The American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest’s Partnership for Asthma Action project is working with 90 clinics in Chicago, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St. Paul and St. Louis.

Partners for Asthma Action aims to improve the quality of life, school achievement and life prospects of more than 180,000 low-income children living with asthma in the five target cities to help reduce the costs of asthma care in these communities by reducing unnecessary health care utilization; to enhance awareness of asthma treatment and education resources; and to establish a sustainable capacity of local public health and social service agencies to remove asthma environmental triggers, and identify and refer children with poorly managed asthma.

The grant is part of United Health Foundation’s “Helping Build Healthier Communities” program that is providing critical resources to nonprofit, community-based organizations across the country to improve people’s health.
