LASC Vision, Mission and Purpose

Our Vision:
To improve the quality of life for asthmatics so that all people in Louisiana live, work, play, and learn in communities that support health and optimal quality of life.

Our Mission:
To establish a statewide collaboration that develops and implements strategies that reduce the health and economic consequences caused by asthma through evidence-based, data driven best practices.

Improve the quality of life for individuals with asthma by facilitating community collaborations; establishing an effective surveillance system; advocating for an asthma-friendly environment; and developing a comprehensive asthma education program for schools, providers, and other members of the community.

The LASC identified six priority areas that would eventually drive the development of Louisiana¡¯s statewide asthma plan to improve the health of asthma patients statewide:

  1. Community Outreach
  2. Healthcare Education
  3. Advocacy and Policy
  4. Data and Surveillance
  5. Health Inequities
  6. Comprehensive Evaluation
