Thanks for visiting the new and improved Fight Asthma Milwaukee (FAM) Allies website! We're pretty excited to offer this new experience for fellow Milwaukeans to learn more about our coalition and what we do, and to learn more about the impact of asthma and what can be done to help.
Feel free to poke around and see what FAM has been up to, learn more about our programming, discover new information about asthma management, and even sign up for our annual gala – you don't want to miss it!
Fight Asthma Milwaukee (FAM) Allies was founded in 1994 – one of the first asthma coalitions in the country. We seek to improve the lives of people affected by asthma through community partnerships, resources, services, and education. Milwaukee County has the highest rate of asthma hospitalizations and emergency department visits in the state. In some Milwaukee public schools, one in four children suffer from asthma! Fortunately, FAM Allies has been able to touch the lives of over 4,000 people per year in the Milwaukee area affected by asthma.
