Just in time for National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, CHOC Children’s is pleased to celebrate the CHOC Breathmobile’s 15 years of service to the community. As the only mobile asthma clinic dedicated to serving preschool and school-aged children in Orange County, this important resource removes barriers for children and their families who may be unable to access preventive asthma care. Additionally, the program is provided on certain days inside four of our CHOC primary care clinics for the convenience of our patients and families.
The Breathmobile team is currently working on a telehealth asthma consultation program to improve care for underserved children with asthma in pediatric practices throughout Orange County. The Breathmobile also serves as a training site for residents, fellows, nursing students and pharmacy residents.
CHOC Children’s is grateful to Dr. Stanley Galant, medical director of CHOC’s Breathmobile, and the entire CHOC Breathmobile team for your unwavering commitment and dedication to your field and to our patient and their families.
