The mission of the Breathmobile program is to provide free asthma specialty care services to underserved Baltimore City children, with the goal of controlling their chronic, incurable medical condition and enabling them to stay in school and lead full, productive lives.

Qlarant Foundation continues support for the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital Breathmobile Program. The University of Maryland Medical System Foundation received the annual Goldgeier Award for the Breathmobile Program. The Breathmobile provides free treatment and preventive care to high- risk underserved children with asthma that results in improvement in asthma outcomes. These outcomes include decreased hospitalizations, decreased emergency department visits, increased use of preventive asthma treatments, improved school attendance and improved quality of life.
