Xavier University of Louisiana is partnering with Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans (DCSNO) and the Children’s Health Fund (CHF) to provide individualized education to children with asthma, ages 2 to 18, and their families. The results of the Head-off Environmental Asthma in Louisiana (HEAL) Phase II Project will help us learn how asthma educators can better help with asthma management.
How HEAL Phase II Works
Asthma educators will provide tailored counseling for individual children with asthma (ages 2-18) and their families to improve asthma management and avoid exacerbation of symptoms. The identified population in HEAL Phase II are children who are patients of the Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans’ Carrollton, St. Cecilia and Metairie Clinics. DCSNO provides primary and preventative healthcare to infants, children, adults and seniors in New Orleans. The program will also enroll children who receive care at the Children’s Health Fund-Tulane University Health Sciences Center Department of Pediatrics mobile clinic that currently serves Fredrick Douglas High School and A.D. Crossman Esperanza Charter School.
