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 action groups or project teams, by networking with others at the AIM Partnership Forum or Asthma Educator Sharing Day, or by working on efforts in their own communities or regions. For more information about Michigan's asthma work read our latest strategic plan.

Partner Meetings

Partnership Forum: An annual Spring 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.

Asthma Educator Sharing Day: An annual Fall meeting for anyone who considers themselves an asthma educator. Sharing Day provides an opportunity to network with others who are also asthma educators, and meet experts in the field. Presentations are more clinical, and continuing education credits are provided.

Action Groups

Purpose: Convened to guide and foster activities in specific areas of need; groups meet regularly with no defined end date.

  • Advisory: a collaborative of national and state asthma clinical and policy leaders representing key sectors and high burden areas, including members of the other action groups (see below), non-profits, MDHHS programs; professional organizations, universities, health systems, MI Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy, health plans and other intervention partners. This group convenes yearly to advise MiAPCP on activities, opportunities and emerging issues that align with their work and best practices, and assess their impact on the statewide strategic plan.
  • Schools: a collaborative of state and local school and asthma experts that meets quarterly to lead efforts to improve asthma policies and learning environments for people with asthma.
  • MATCH: representatives from all organizations providing MATCH services meet monthly to help build and sustain MATCH programs.
  • Evaluation: a collaborative of state and local asthma champions who provide guidance for evaluation planning and implementation.

Project Teams

Purpose: Convened to accomplish defined activities with a tangible product; short, defined term. For example, a group of emergency department experts and other asthma champions met for several months to create the FLARE plan.

Members:
  • Project coordinator- usually MDHHS asthma staff member
  • Project leader- AIM member
