Mission Hospital's Mission Asthma Education Program was implemented in 2000 to improve the quality of life for children with asthma.

The Asthma Program helps children, their parents, and adults learn to control asthma through classes about asthma, allergies, triggers, and medications. Peak flow meters and spacers are distributed and proper technique is demonstrated. The program also works with school districts to educate and manage asthma within the school setting. A special, growing project for the low-income children and parents (predominately Latino) combines bilingual education and free medical care through a partner program, the Breathmobile.

Evaluation to date has indicated a positive impact on the following health outcomes: hospital utilization, emergency department visits, school absences, quality of life for children, symptoms, and medication use.
