FAC Annual Summit

Florida Asthma Coalition 2021 Virtual Summit

We thank you for having joined us on July 30th for the 2021 Virtual Florida Asthma Coalition Summit! The theme of the 2021 Virtual Summit was Resiliency in the Face of COVID-19. This was a FREE, full-day conference that was an excellent opportunity to network with peers across the state who work in the hospital, clinical, community, and school-based settings. This was also an opportunity to learn about asthma management innovations, best practices & guidelines for improving asthma outcomes during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  •  If you were unable to join us, don't worry! We have many recordings of the Summit available on Youtube or OneDrive
