Education Initiative

According to the Center for Disease Control, six percent of Alabamians have asthma, with 199,000 persons now diagnosed. In partnership with Auburn University's Harrison School of Pharmacy, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System has developed an educational initiative to address this serious health problem.
