The Merck Childhood Asthma Network (MCAN) partnered with The George Washington University (GW) School of Public Health and Health Services, the RCHN Community Health Foundation and Rho to implement the Community Healthcare for Asthma Management and Prevention of Symptoms (CHAMPS) project in three non-profit, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC). This initiative in community health centers (CHC) is designed to demonstrate how tailored, evidence-based asthma management programs proven efficacious in controlled trials, can be implemented in real-world settings where many children and families most in need get care.
