Asthma impacts on our communities

Minnesota Public Radio has done a compelling story on the extent and impacts of asthma in our communities.  The story highlights the prevalence of asthma in urban neighborhoods and on communities already experiencing the impacts of health disparities.

This story reinforces our findings from the Hiawatha CARE project - where people repeatedly shared their concerns about asthma, its triggers, and its impacts on the health of their children.  These concerns led to the development of strategies to address indoor air quality, second hand smoke, and vehicle emissions in our CARE Community Action Plan.

Check the article for more information about the impacts of asthma including maps from our CARE Project partners at the Minnesota Department of Health.
