The Alliance for Consumer Education (ACE) is a non-profit foundation dedicated to advancing community health and well-being. Disease Prevention is 1 of 4 core ACE program areas; others include Inhalant Abuse Prevention, Poison Prevention and product management.
Disease prevention is a national challenge. The germs that cause communicable diseases are transmitted by people from homes, schools, and the workplace to the larger community, contributing to a continuous cycle of disease. Furthermore, these germs are constantly transmitted by people and animals on a variety of surfaces, as well as through the air.
Did you know over 30,000 people in the United States die each year from the influenza (flu)? Did you know 9,000,000 children currently under the age of 18 have been diagnosed with asthma? The purpose of ACE’s Disease Prevention program is to promote a healthier environment in homes, businesses, and the community by providing information necessary to break the cycle of disease transmission. Using experts in the targeted program area, ACE is developing research-based community outreach to educate individuals and families.
