Asthma Initiative of Michigan Partners

Partnerships with people and organizations are the keys to AIM’s success. AIM partners work together in many ways: by participating on committees or project teams, by networking with others at the AIM Partnership Forum, or by working locally in asthma coalitions. For more information about Michigan’s asthma work, read our latest strategic plan.

Partnership Forum

The Asthma Initiative of Michigan Partnership Forum is a meeting for individuals and representatives of organizations committed to reducing Michigan's asthma burden. The Forum provides opportunities to link state and local level partners, promote awareness of asthma-friendly policies, and spread best-practice findings through presentations, updates and networking.
