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 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.
