Langston is program leader of strategic partnerships at the Alliance. In this role, he builds community-based partnerships to improve asthma management, enhance quality of life, reduce disparities and prevent asthma-related deaths. In addition, he oversees the management of the Wisconsin Asthma Coalition, a diverse group comprised of more than 250 members spanning various professions statewide.

Langston has over 15 years of experience in public health and is committed to creating environments where children and families thrive. He received his Master of Public Health degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Zilber School of Public Health with a focus on public health policy and administration and is an alumnus of Marquette University’s Future Milwaukee program.

Langston has a passion for community justice and is co-founder of Milwaukee’s Summer of Peace initiative. Established in 2002, this youth led non-violence program has touched the lives of tens of thousands of children and recently expanded with an annual peace summit on Chicago’s Southside.

In his spare time, Langston enjoys staying active…from the simple neighborhood walks with his two children to playing in competitive kickball and paintball leagues.
