National Capital Asthma Coalition Update
The National Capital Asthma Coalition (NCAC), a former grantee of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Pediatric Asthma Initiative and its Allies Against Asthma program, ended its non-profit corporation status on December 31, 2007 (see history), but its collaborative work continues through an extraordinary network of more than 300 professionals and volunteers dedicated to NCAC's mission of improving the system of care and outcomes for children and adults with asthma. Thanks to our partners, the collaborative initiatives NCAC launched in homes, schools, and healthcare institutions continues to expand. Please make use of the resources available on this Web site. For more information, please contact Lisa A. Gilmore (former Executive Director), (202) 415-1962.
Resources and Recent Accomplishments:
NCAC completed 2007 with an outstanding record of accomplishment and resources for consumers and professionals:
Launched in 1999 as a campaign, NCAC evolved into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit alliance of public and private member organizations that functioned as a major resource for asthma education and institutional collaboration. NCAC's organizational structure included five committees (Policy, Education, Health Services, Environment, and Data) that planned and implemented initiatives and special events in coordination with NCAC’s staff. NCAC's monthly e-newsletter provided ongoing updates to members and other interested parties.
