2018 Florida Asthma Coalition Summit

Working Towards Health Equity in Asthma Outcomes in Florida

The Florida Asthma Coalition hosted 90 guests at the 2018 FAC Summit at Nemours Children's Hospital on February 9, 2018. Fifteen individuals shared their expertise, experiences, and best practices through plenary and breakout speaking sessions. On Thursday, February 8, 2018, 48 coalition members joined us for a pre-summit meeting where we discussed the strengths, gaps, and needs for our workgroups to continue their work to reduce the burden of asthma throughout Florida. We thoroughly enjoyed having you all and hope to see you again next year! Presentations provided during the 2018 FAC Summit can be found below.
