Partners for Asthma Action is a community
collaborative in the Twin Cities to improve the health
and quality of care for children (0-18 yrs). Throughout the cities,
the project has 15 different interventions with broad scope to make an
impact in the lives of kids with asthma. The Project began in 2001 to
provide leadership, direction, and infrastructure to address the needs
of children with asthma and their families. The Project strives to bring
a multi-disciplinary approach to asthma, actively seeking out
opportunities for partnerships and linking people together.
The American Lung Association in Minnesota and Partners for Asthma Action (formerly Controlling Asthma Project) is pleased to share two peer-reviewed journal articles based on the eight-year Controlling Asthma in American Cities Project. These articles were release in the CDC-led February 2011 edition of the Jounral of Urban Health.
