National Jewish Health announced on August 24, 2016 the creation of The Cohen Family Asthma Institute, which will address an emerging gap in severe asthma care, research and education while seeking a cure for the disease in five years.

The Cohen Family Asthma Institute will build on historic strengths at National Jewish Health in asthma, allergy and immunology while bringing together a broad coalition of researchers, physicians, patients and health care organizations to focus on the causes, treatments and prevention of asthma. Co-Directors Michael Wechsler, MD, and Rohit Katial, MD, with Associate Director Ronina Covar, MD, will lead The Cohen Family Asthma Institute. Richard Martin, MD, who is chair of the Department of Medicine at National Jewish Health, will also chair the Cohen Family Asthma Institute’s Board of Directors.
