“The Asthma Coalition of Los Angeles County is pleased to present the policy brief: Controlling Asthma in Los Angeles County: A Call to Action””. This document reviews the impact of asthma on county residents, discusses the factors that contribute to this disease, and provides recommendations for improving asthma outcomes in the following areas: health care; indoor and outdoor air quality; schools and child care centers; race/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities and research. The Coalition developed the document with input from numerous experts in the field, including clinical care professionals, environmental policy advocates, school and childcare experts, and asthma researchers. The purpose of the Call to Action is to raise awareness among public officials, community leaders, and those working to improve asthma-related systems of care, and to serve as a catalyst for people to come together to implement the proposed recommendations. Please feel free to share the Call to Action with your members and email list.
