Mobile Asthma Screening/Awareness – MASA
The Breath of Hope Foundation, Inc. Mobile Asthma Screening and Awareness Unit believes education and prevention are the keys to a healthy lifestyle. We will provide services to any entity that wishes to have them, such as health departments, schools, church groups and other events such as health fairs, community events, and sporting events.
This mobile asthma screening and awareness unit can include exam tables, refrigerators, restroom facilities, and a waiting area, A TV and VCR can aid in patient education and a computer station allows current information to be readily at hand. The Mobile Asthma Screening and Awareness Unit will only require a flat, level-parking surface. An electrical hook-up is not necessary as the unit runs off its own generator.
In most neighborhoods, families are accustomed to an abundance of medical expertise. Individuals living in low-income, impoverished or under served areas, they have limited access to quality medical care and information. The Breath of Hope Foundation Asthma Screening and Awareness Unit will be designed to improve access to medical care and awareness for under served children. Breath of Hope Foundation, Inc, wants to capitalize on President George W. Bush’s almost $25-million commitment to faith- and community-based organizations, designed to ease the burden of children’s health care in economically disadvantaged populations.
