"Asthma can be a highly variable disease. While there is good evidence for quality care, the general applicability of this evidence is limited by real-world circumstances. An over-reliance on evidence in the name of efficient health care can have the opposite, unintended consequence of restricting access to appropriate care for millions." –
Bill McLin, Executive Director, Asthma / Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA)

"Without the collective resources of the Working Group, there is no way that our sole organization acting by itself could stay abreast of the ever-widening initiatives by others beneath the protective cloak of 'evidence based medicine.' Nor could we unilaterally summon the creativity and the energy needed to respond so that a participatory process could be guided and unfold fairly for everyone impacted." – Nancy Muller, Executive Director, National Association For Continence (NFC)
