Philadelphia Asthma Summit

For almost 20 years, the Community Asthma Prevention Program has focused on fighting disparities in asthma through strong community ties, high performing-collaborations and partnerships, community health workers, integration of healthcare services and tailored environmental interventions to increase the effectiveness of care for people with asthma.

The Fighting Asthma Disparities Summit was designed to bring together doctors, nurses, regional and local public health officials, social workers, caregivers, community health workers and members of the community to increase awareness, provide education and encourage advocacy. The 8th Annual Fighting Asthma Disparities Summit was held on Sept. 20, 2016, at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. This year, the focus was on social determinants of health, which as defined by the CDC are “are factors in the social environment that contribute to or detract from the health of individuals and communities.”

The Fighting Asthma Disparities Summit was sponsored by the Community Asthma Prevention Program (CAPP), Pennsylvania Department of Health and Keystone First Health Plans.
