Once again the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital Breathmobile Program has received the Qlarant Foundation’s Goldgeier Award. The Breathmobile takes asthma care directly to students in Baltimore City schools and provides free preventive care to high-risk underserved children with asthma. The program results in improvement in asthma outcomes, including decreased hospitalizations, decreased emergency department visits, decreased missed school days, improved use of preventive asthma medications and improvement in asthma control.
