Asthma:
Overview

We need your help to take control of asthma in Wisconsin

 

Asthma is a chronic lung disease characterized by inflammation of the airways. Asthma is common, deadly, expensive and disruptive. However, it is controllable and Wisconsin is making some progress.

The Wisconsin Asthma Coalition (WAC) is a diverse group comprised of more than 180 members spanning various professions statewide. The WAC fosters partnerships to improve asthma management, enhance quality of life, reduce disparities and prevent asthma-related deaths.

The WAC Executive Committee meets monthly to guide and make recommendations to implement the Wisconsin Asthma Plan.
