Southeastern Wisconsin School-based Asthma Management Program (SE Wisconsin SAMPRO™)

To improve health outcomes for children with asthma, school-based partnerships focus on integrated care coordination amongst families, clinicians and school nurses. Our role in SE Wisconsin SAMPRO™ is to connect partners, improve systems to support students with asthma and implement the Wisconsin Asthma Coalition school walkthrough program.

Our partners in Milwaukee and Kenosha implement SAMPRO™ program activities to support each child with asthma and improve asthma management. The four components of SAMPRO™ are: Circle of Support, Asthma Management Plans, Asthma Education Plan and Environmental Plan. View the SAMPRO™ Toolkit to learn more.

SAMPRO™ Toolkit

Administrators, school nurses and clinicians can use this toolkit to implement SAMPRO™ at local schools or organizations.
