The Summit is hosted by the Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI), the Maryland Department of Health and the Greater Baltimore Asthma Alliance (GBAA). The GBAA is a community partnership of individuals and organizations that are committed to reducing the burden of asthma in the Greater Baltimore area.
