The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP) Coordinating Committee consists of representatives from the major scientific, professional, governmental, and voluntary organizations interested in asthma. The Committee’s primary mission is to advise the NHLBI on matters concerning asthma and to facilitate the exchange of information on asthma activities among the member agencies and voluntary health organizations.
The NHLBI administers and coordinates the NAEPP Committee. The NAEPP Coordinating Committee meetings are open to the public and include presentations and discussion on a variety of topics concerning asthma, including activities and projects of the Committee.
Visit the NAEPP Program to learn more about this program, as well as the legislation that governs it and the NAEPP Coordinating Committee.
