Environmental Protection Agency's National Environmental Leadership Award in Asthma Management

Steven J. Bernstein, MD, MPH, was the 2008 recipient of the Environmental Protection Agency's National Environmental Leadership Award in Asthma Management. Dr. Bernstein is a research scientist at HSR&D's Center for Clinical Management Research in Ann Arbor, and he provides support for VA's Diabetes Mellitus Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (Diabetes-QUERI). He also is an attending physician in the Department of Medicine at the Ann Arbor VAMC.

The award was created to recognize leading health plans and health care providers addressing environmental triggers as part of their comprehensive asthma care programs. Award winners serve as models for health plans and providers looking for ways to improve health outcomes for their patients with asthma. Winning programs demonstrate a sustained record of improving health outcomes, achieving cost-savings, and implementing innovative programs to improve the management of environmental triggers for asthma.
