Utah Asthma Task Force


Utah communities working together to improve the quality of life for people with asthma.


The Utah Asthma Task Force was formed in 2001. It is comprised of health professionals, educators, and community members that collaborate to improve asthma care and management in Utah.

Task Force meetings are generally held quarterly each year. The meetings are an opportunity to learn current asthma practices, research, and resources in Utah, and to network and collaborate with other state partners in asthma related projects.

The Utah Asthma Program also hosts a listserv for the Task Force and provides periodic updates on current asthma opportunities and Task Force meetings.

Please join us at our next Task Force meeting:

ATFDate: First Tuesday of February, June, and October
