This is the fifth presentation in our 5-part series on Georgia’s health priorities. This presentation will focus on asthma in Georgia.
Dr. Elizabeth Herman, senior scientist with the Air Pollution and Respiratory Health Branch, National Center for Environmental Health at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will share the national perspective on the burden of asthma and efforts to reduce that burden as well as opportunities for state programs to expand access to comprehensive asthma control services through health care reform. Dr. Jean O'Connor, Director, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Section with the Georgia Department of Health, will focus on the burden of asthma in Georgia and what the Georgia Asthma Control program has done to date to address that burden.
The Georgia Asthma Control program (GACP) is part of a national initiative launched by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Environmental Health (Air Pollution and Respiratory Health Branch). GACP aims to reduce the burden of asthma and improve the health and quality of life among Georgians affected by asthma through effective control of the disease.
