Enhancing Care for Children with Asthma
Asthma affects 6.1 million kids nationwide. Poorly controlled asthma can impact a child’s academic performance and can also result in missed work days for parents who must care for a sick child.
Health Care Service Corporation’s partnership with the American Lung Association of the Upper Midwest, is helping fight childhood asthma.
Their partnership identifies clinics treating a larger number of pediatric patients with asthma and provides a year-long training program focused on improving quality of care.
In the program’s first three years, 36,000 health care professionals and parents of children with asthma were engaged through training and awareness efforts—reaching an estimated 350,000 children.
