Resources for Minnesota Asthma Events
Minnesota Asthma Coalition
The Minnesota Asthma Coalition (MAC) was created through collaboration between the Minnesota Department of Health and the American Lung Association of Minnesota. The MAC brings together individuals and groups to work on asthma in a collaborative approach by promoting awareness, prevention and culturally sensitive education, ensuring access to state-of-the-art-care, and providing monitoring, analysis, and dissemination of information. A network of seven regional asthma coalitions has been set-up across Minnesota, to provide support for local asthma awareness and prevention efforts throughout the state. You can contact your region's MAC by going to the link and choosing the region where you live.
Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA)
The Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) was launched in 1993 in collaboration with National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health, USA and the World Health Organization. Its objective is to work with health care professionals and public health officials around the world to reduce asthma prevalence, morbidity and mortality.
