Asthma Control Program
To reduce disparities among populations disproportionately affected by asthma and improve health outcomes of all Rhode Islanders with asthma.
What we do
- Increase access to quality healthcare, asthma education, community resources, and services.
- Identify and focus efforts on at-risk populations which include: Hispanic and black non-Hispanic children, Medicaid recipients, and children and adults of low income residing in the core cities.
- Advocate for healthy environments where people with asthma live, work, learn, and play.
- Collaborate with the
Rhode Island Asthma Control Coalition and the Healthy Housing Collaborative to help people with asthma manage their disease.
- Develop innovative projects like the
Breathe Easy at Home pilot project to diagnose and control asthma triggers in the home of children with asthma in select core cities.
