Healthy Alamance Child Asthma Coalition
The Healthy Alamance Child Asthma Coalition was formed in 2001, this coalition has an annual meeting schedule to gather at least 4 times per year and has had on-going goals to reduce the rate of asthma related hospitalizations in Alamance County, reduce the number of school days missed by children with asthma, and provide families with asthmatic children education and resources to improve their care.
The coalition improves the health and well-being of asthmatic children and their families by providing education, fostering collaboration and strengthening resources.
The Pediatric Asthma Center located at
