Our Mission

The Nebraska Asthma Coalition strives to improve health outcomes and quality of life for individuals affected by asthma in our state. We work to accomplish our mission through our core values of collaboration, inclusivity, data-driven decision making and commitment to addressing health disparities. 



What Are Biologics?

If you or someone you know has struggled with asthma, your provider may have mentioned that you need biologic medication, and you may ask yourself, What are biologics? 

Biologics are a type of asthma and allergy treatment that providers may consider when the medications you are currently using are not enough to keep your symptoms under control. Biologics target the cells and proteins in the inflammatory pathways to stop inflammation at the source. They are specialized and targeted for the specific condition that they treat and may help control the symptoms of severe uncontrolled asthma. 

Biologis can only be prescribed by a healthcare provider. For more answers, please discuss with your asthma provider whether you are a candidate for biologic medications, and visit for more information.
