Did you miss the US EPA’s 2022 Asthma Award Winner Webinar: Innovative Strategies and Partnerships to Improve Asthma Outcomes Through a Comprehensive Approach? A recording of the event is now available.

The 2022 winner of the EPA’s National Environmental Leadership Award in Asthma Management, the Utah Department of Health Asthma Program, describes how the program:  

  • Expanded the reach, effectiveness and sustainability of comprehensive asthma control services in Utah. 
  • Developed partnerships and a screening protocol to address high-risk clients’ social, mental, physical and emotional needs. 
  • Established a home-visiting program shown to improve asthma outcomes, including a 75 percent reduction in asthma-related emergency department visits. 
  • Secured sustainable financing for the Utah Asthma Home Visiting Program, which included conducting a return-on-investment analysis that expanded the program to Medicaid members in rural fee-for-service areas.

The recording is available here.
