The Asthma Alliance of Indianapolis was initiated in 1997 and is comprised of the Marion County Public Health Department, American Lung Association, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, and five major Indianapolis hospitals. The participating hospitals include Indiana University Health, St. Vincent Hospital and Health Center, Franciscan St. Francis Health, Community Hospitals, and Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Hospital. This asthma coalition consists of healthcare professionals with varied backgrounds, including pediatric medicine, nursing, respiratory therapy, social work, and environmental health. A multidisciplinary approach to asthma education, prevention, and treatment allows comprehensive support to the local community.
