Stanislaus County Asthma Coalition


 “To create an asthmafriendly community by promoting awareness, education, management, and prevention.”

 The Stanislaus County Asthma Coalition is a diverse group of 85 individuals and organizations that volunteer to meet and strategize approaches to making Stanislaus County an “asthma-friendly” community.  The coalition formed in 2002. 

By following the CA Dept. of Public Health, Strategic Plan for Asthma in CA, sub-committees were formed accordingly:

 ▪Public Education    ▪Treatment & Management    ▪Data & Epidemiology   ▪Strategic Planning & Policy Advocacy


  • To provide education about asthma and asthma management to persons with asthma, their caregivers, childcare providers, and school personnel; to provide education to health care providers to improve and standardize asthma management to meet national asthma care guidelines. 
  •  To increase awareness of environmental asthma triggers and advocate for clean indoor and outdoor air; increase awareness of the air quality index and its correlation to asthmatics. Promote the Asthma Flag Program in public and private schools and raise public awareness of asthma. 
  • To maintain an Asthma Coalition website for Stanislaus County that will include asthma educational information and resources. Promote analysis of available data on the prevalence, incidence, morbidity, and mortality of asthma to demonstrate the burden of asthma in Stanislaus County.
