Environmental and Occupational Health Resources

The relationship between the environment and asthma is well established- controlling environmental triggers is imperative to those affected by asthma.  The Indoor Air Quality Program at the Marion County Public Health Department works closely with the Asthma Alliance of Indianapolis to provide education and resources for remediating and eliminating environmental asthma triggers.  The program responds to requests for home assessments with families and individuals who are experiencing difficulty managing their illness.
