CCAC’s mission is to reduce the burden of asthma and related conditions through education, intervention, policy analysis and advocacy by improving care and reducing air pollution in the eight counties of the San Joaquin Valley.
We see a San Joaquin Valley where the health of every resident is our foremost concern.
Central California Asthma Collaborative (CCAC) was founded out of a need that the Fresno/Madera Asthma Coalition (FMAC) identified in the lack of asthma-related education, advocacy and resources in the regions it served. In 2011, FMAC received a grant from the Wesley Foundation to develop and implement an asthma education program for children in low-income communities. Working with Fresno State University’s Masters in Public Health program students, the newly formed CCAC recruited students to do outreach in the community and visit asthma impacted families to perform what is now the Asthma Impact Model (AIM) Program.
