Webinar: Developing Mechanisms for Sustainable Funding of Community Asthma Management 
Part of the Childhood Asthma Leadership Coalition Webinar Series 
Wednesday, February 6 
12:30 - 2 p.m. EST   

Asthma symptoms are triggered and exacerbated by many risk factors found in homes and community environments. Interventions designed to reduce or eliminate these asthma triggers - such as patient self-management education, home visits and care coordination by certified asthma educators and community health workers, and supplies to mitigate environmental asthma triggers - can greatly decrease asthma morbidity. However, many of these evidence-based interventions and services fall outside of traditional clinical "health care" interventions included in care delivery systems and reimbursed by insurers.  
 
Join the Childhood Asthma Leadership Coalition on Wednesday, February 6 for a FREE webinar, entitled "Developing Mechanisms for Sustainable Funding of Community Asthma Management." This offering will take a closer look at new and ongoing efforts underway in Massachusetts to address the burden of childhood asthma through delivery system innovations and new reimbursement models that promote community-based interventions to reduce asthma triggers in homes and community settings.
