As current chair of the HCP workgroup I want to thank this group for all their hard work on this project. One of the goals for the HCP workgroup as stated in the Indiana State Asthma Plan is to provide education for health care providers. This review and CME offering of the ‘NHLBI National Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma Expert Panel Report 3’ is a major step forward in helping lessen the burden of asthma in Indiana.
