National Asthma Control Program: America Breathing Easier 2003

"Much of what is known about controlling asthma is not being applied. This is the challenge that we have taken on. CDC is supporting asthma data tracking, interventions, and partnerships nationwide in order to bridge this gap and to help people with asthma live symptom-free."

Julie Louise Gerberding, MD, MPH
Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
