This year, the Communities in Action National Asthma Forum will be held June 9-10, in Washington, DC. Join hundreds of asthma professionals from across the country and gain knowledge on how to:

• Apply the tools and strategies best-in-class asthma programs utilize to create healthy environments and achieve asthma control in their communities.
• Use national, state and local data to determine your community's greatest needs and help define the proper interventions through community collaboration.
• Develop your program's unique value proposition to help fund and sustain your program.
• Obtain the practical knowledge to help launch, improve and expand an asthma program's reach into a community through its 'on-the-ground' personnel.
• Achieve breakthrough asthma outcomes through the collaborations and partnerships within your community by bridging environmental interventions and integrated health care.

Past participants rave about the Forum:

"People who are starting up programs are in for a great treat because this is very much about sharing best practices. I find that the whole approach to the Forum is about collaboration, about learning from each other and it's very interactive...They really walk you through a work plan so that you can come back to your individual programs with some very distinct goals of what your next steps should be in terms of moving your program forward."
-- Cindy Cookson, Neighborhood Health Plan
