Working Together to Address Asthma in Tribal Communities in the Northwest
Sponsoring Program Name:
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Asthma disproportionately impacts tribal communities, and conditions in homes can impact respiratory health. EPA is working with a team of partners in the Northwest to help improve indoor air quality and better manage asthma by building community support networks involving clinical, housing, environment, and social services programs. These networks can provide home visits that involve patient education, home assessments, and changes to the home that improve health. In this video, hear from EPA and tribal leaders and representatives about the asthma and healthy homes work happening in the Pacific Northwest.
