The Asthma Coalition of Kern County has been around for over 15 years and consists of local citizens and professional individuals. Our members include representatives from Kern County Department of Public Health Services, Kern Health Systems, American Lung Association, Dignity Health, , Bakersfield City School District, and Kern Council of Governments.
In May 2014, in recognition of World Asthma Day, the Asthma Coalition of Kern County held an Asthma Education Event, which included food, giveaways, and education in English and Spanish. In addition, in previous years, coalition members have informed local policymakers about the risks of smoking, resulting in a ban on smoking Kern County public housing and created the County of Kern Asthma Resource Directory.
