Asthma affects more than 23 million Americans, including an estimated seven million children. Region 4 consists of the 8 Southeastern States: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Region 4's asthma program partners with other federal agencies, state and local asthma coalitions to decrease the number of asthamatics exposed to indoor environmental asthma triggers.
