- EPA recognizes asthma program's leadership (May 3, 2016, Public Health Insider)
On May 3, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the King County Asthma Program as a recipient of the 2016 National Environmental Leadership Award in Asthma Management. The award honors local asthma programs for leadership in improving the lives of people with asthma, especially those in underserved communities.
- Guidelines to Practice (G2P): Reducing Asthma Health Disparities through Guideline Implementation
The purpose of G2P is to help children and adults with asthma. The goal of the study is to work with clinics, health plans, and with patients in their homes to improve asthma care. The focus of this program is on low-income and minority asthma patients: these patients are affected on a larger scale by asthma.
