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.
We see 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.
The goals of CCAC 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.

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.
