Project HEAL

HEAL (Health Equity Advancement & Leadership) is a project with the goal of building and supporting community-based work to address inequities in asthma. The overall goal of HEAL is to reduce asthma deaths and illness among high-risk populations.

The Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America – Michigan Chapter (AAFA-MI,) has been chosen to start a HEAL program.  We hope to improve asthma control through advancing general health and wellness, access to specialty care, assessment of home environments, and asthma self-management education.

We are looking for 50 people to join in this project and learn what good asthma control means. Along the way, we will provide tools, resources and incentives aimed at improving your asthma control and overall wellness. Sign up because you want to stop going to the emergency room and missing work or activities because your asthma is acting up and you just want to feel better!

To qualify for the HEAL project, YOU:

  • have been told by a doctor you have asthma

  • live in Detroit, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Inkster, Redford, or River Rouge

  • are 18 or over

  • have been affected by healthcare inequities

 

                 

If this is you and you want to get control back, fill out the:
