Regional Asthma Disease Management Program

Mission Children’s Hospital Regional Asthma Disease Management Program was designed to address health disparities in underserved and impoverished children suffering from asthma who live in rural western North Carolina. A multifaceted approach is used that helps families build skills in managing environmental triggers and connects them with other community resources.  Addressing social determinants of health cannot be overlooked as our children are at risk for lower school performance, decreased attendance, fragile nutritional status and inadequate housing. Through this program, children and families are given evidence-based care and education in their local settings – homes, childcare centers, schools and other community sites. Our program embraces a holistic approach through compassionate care and patient advocacy.

The Regional Asthma Disease Management Program serves patients at Mission Children's Hospital as well as on-site at schools throughout western North Carolina.

We accept referrals from the child’s primary care provider or other resources, including school nurses and social workers. 

To schedule an appointment or for questions, please call: (828) 213-8254.
