Are you a leader in asthma management? The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is currently accepting applications for the 2013 National Environmental Leadership Award in Asthma Management. If you are a health plan, health care provider, or a community in action that has demonstrated success in managing environmental asthma triggers as part of your comprehensive asthma management program, apply to receive recognition for your important work.

Spread the Word! – New this year, EPA is seeking school-based asthma management programs working toward controlling asthma in schools to submit an application for a School-Based Asthma Program Award under the Communities in Action category. If you know of an exceptional asthma program that understands the connection between effective asthma management in schools and healthy learning environments, and works to control asthma in schools, please encourage them to apply for this opportunity!

Applications are due by February 12, 2013, 11:59 p.m. EST.
