Addressing Disparities

Asthma is one area where disparities are especially prevalent when race and ethnicity are taken into account. Complex factors play a role including structural determinants such as discriminatory policies; social determinants such as socioeconomic status, education, the physical environment, and access to health care; biological determinants; and behavioral determinants such as tobacco use. The Center has formed vital community partnerships to ensure that both traditional and novel therapies are accessible to all who need them. 

The philanthropic support of our community allows us to make therapeutic advancements in the treatment of asthma and sinus disease, physician training, and health care equity is possible.
