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.
