Welcome, and thank you for visiting our site. If this is your first time here, allow me to introduce you to NYSPHA in greater detail.
We're excited for the opportunity to partner with the NYS Department of Health to bring public health professionals together from across the state for a leading-edge Asthma Summit.
On June 21-22 attendees will have the option to participate in one of two, 2-day training workshops on asthma, and then a larger summit on June 23-24.
We know that asthma has grown into a significant chronic disease over the last 25 years, and it continues to be a public health concern across the United States. Please visit our Asthma Summit information page to learn more about this upcoming event, and share this opportunity within your own networks as we hope to bring together as many people as possible to engage in this important summit.
