The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America last week published the newest version of the Asthma Capitals™ report to raise awareness about the nationwide impacts of asthma. The report analyzes data from across the continental United States and ranks the 100 largest cities where it is challenging to live with asthma.
Columbus, Cleveland and Dayton are listed in the top 20 of the list. The report ranks cities by the most critical of health outcomes – asthma prevalence, emergency department visits due to asthma attacks and asthma mortality. The report also examines asthma risk factors that influence the outcomes.
