CDC's National Center for Environmental Health, Public Health Program Practice Office, and Public Health Training Network, in collaboration with the American Pharmaceutical Association, will co-sponsor a live satellite broadcast, "A Public Health Response to Asthma," May 17, 2001, from 1 to 3:30 PM eastern time. The broadcast is designed for state and local health agency officials, health educators, epidemiologists, environmental health specialists, school health officials and nurses, managed care personnel, pharmacists, public health students, respiratory therapists, nurses, nonprofit asthma organization staff, and primary care providers who deal with asthma. The broadcast will describe why asthma is an escalating problem in the United States, discuss intervention programs, and provide tools and resources to use in local communities to combat the disease.

Continuing education credit for a variety of professions will be offered based on 2.5 hours of instruction. Additional information about the broadcast is available from the World-Wide Web, http://www.cdc.gov/phtn/asthma/.
