Although my involvment was short-lived, I could see that this group was very inclusive of diverse groups with a vested interest in improving quality of life and access to services for patients (especially children) with asthma in our state. Most impressive to me was how informed the group was from a political stand point. One area of improvement for the group would be to be more open to new and fresh ideas!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I appreciate the resources and knowledge gained from becoming a member of the Arizona Asthma Coalition. This coalition has the intregity, drive, and goals to obtain high results for improving quality of life for people living with asthma in Arizona and for preventing deaths!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

This organization has provided tools to help me teach nursing staff at our children's hospital regarding the prevelance and morbidity of asthma in our state personally and nationwide. This organization has great resources for the public and school system

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

obtaining great tools to assist with my position as an asthma educator for staff and for children with asthma

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, knowledgable, and driven to obtain the organization's goals

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of so many children and adults affected with asthma!! More advertisements would be on tv and radio to educate the public about asthma. Also an increase of free educational materials to provide to hospitals and schools!

I have found the information shared by the AZ Asthma Coalition is very helpful and have shared much with nurses in my own school district as well as across the state as the President of the School Nurses Organization of Arizona. I am not able to make it to the Phoenix Coalition meeting because I live in Yuma, AZ (a 3 hr trip each way, I feel that the Coalition is working hard to make sure those of us in the trenches with asthma students are benefiting by all the programs that the Coalition has put in place across the state. I know that our local Coalition always struggles to raise money to hold the annual Asthma Camp (Camp-Not-A-Choo) and the Air Quality Flag program, we are all trying to do the best we can at at the same time having many successes along the way.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The AZ Asthma Coalition has helped our local group offer the Open Airways Program for several years. They have also been instsrumental in helping us bring the Air Quality "Flag" program in place in our county. Community awareness about asthma is growing

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way for them to have more funding for the programs they offer

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The amount of information shared and how it has been helping community awareness about the seriousness of asthma in children

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very committed and engaged in taking on volunteer tasks to get the word and programs out to those in need

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide more programs, increase awareness campaigns

Ways to make it better...

I can't say anything negative - communication is open and cooperative

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding to continue the programs across the state

One thing I'd also say is that...

This group is very hard working and cohesive
