Big Results from a Small Clinic: NACC is Tops in Child Asthma Education & Self-management!

The Native American Community Clinic (NACC) is a Federally Qualified Health Center offering a full range of health services (medical, dental, and behavioral health) and community focused care. NACC has approximately 17,000 patient visits every year and 85% of their population is Native American.  Their mission is to serve the Native American community with programs designed around that purpose.

The burden of asthma in Minnesota falls disproportionately on people of color and in poverty.  NACC is increasing the percent of children with asthma who receive asthma education, instruction on self-management of their condition and has a written asthma management plan.
