Type 2 Asthma: CME Program for Health Care Professionals

Despite improvements in the delivery of asthma care and health care reform, the outcomes gap between people of color and white communities has not been reduced in over a decade.

If you are a health care professional interested in learning more about treating patients with type 2 asthma, reducing this gap, and improving outcomes for people of color with asthma, join us for a webinar titled “TARGETING ASTHMA: Community-based Strategies to Enhance Care Access for Children, Adolescents, and Adults – Focus on Social Determinants of Health and Inequities in Care” on Tuesday, April 5 at 2 p.m. ET.

Join an expert panel at this free interactive online continuing medical education (CME) course for a discussion on health inequities for patients with asthma and how to enhance care access and foster long-term asthma control. The panel will also discuss:
  • Strategies to enhance access to individualized care among people of racial and ethnic minorities
  • How to identify patients with moderate-to-severe asthma who may benefit from targeted biologic agents
  • How to identify the place of type-2-targeted biologics in the management of moderate-to-severe asthma
  • And much more


An asthma or allergy diagnosis can be concerning, but it can be managed with support from your health care team and the many resources AAFA offers. Everything we do is in service of helping people with asthma and allergies, their families and their communities. We elevate the voice of the patient always, and without fail, put their interests first.

For 69 years, we've served the asthma and allergy community. Please consider donating today to support our mission to save lives and reduce the burden that asthma and allergies put on people and their families.
