Central California Asthma Collaborative (CCAC) is a non-profit entity focused at mitigating the burden of asthma and other chronic and acute respiratory conditions in the San Joaquin Valley. This is accomplished by advancing health knowledge; creating healthy home, outdoor and school environments; and by promoting access to quality healthcare. CCAC’s work spans the eight counties of the San Joaquin Valley and collaborates with dozens of organizations, agencies, and others to maximize regional impact. CCAC partners actively with School Districts, Asthma Coalitions, Community and Rural Health Centers, Primary Care Providers, Specialists in Respiratory and Allergic Medicine, County Public Health Departments and other community partners.
CCAC sees a San Joaquin Valley where the health of every resident is our foremost concern. We envision environments and systems of support for health reflected in the resources, information, activities and policies in every community.
CCAC’s mission is to provide education and direct services, build regional capacity and advocate for sensible policies to improve health through the prevention and management of chronic disease.
CCAC’s goals are to provide education and direct service related to its mission, to advocate and support system change and policy development, and to increase the capacity of CCAC and its regional partners to sustain these efforts.
