Asthma Regional Council of New England
The Asthma Regional Council brings together the six New England states to address the environmental contributors to asthma. Federal, state and municipal officials, plus selected NGOs, work together to identify policies and programs that will improve asthma outcomes for both children and adults. Our multi-disciplinary partners include public health, environment, health care, education, housing and academia. Our primary focus include reducing ambient and indoor air pollution through diesel reduction efforts, promoting healthy homes and schools, promoting asthma surveillance across the states, and working with the health sectors on improved asthma management programs that include an environmental assessment and remediation component.
