National Jewish Health receives grant to improve care of asthma patients in the San Luis Valley
Date:2/28/2012

National Jewish Health has received a grant for $950,308 from GlaxoSmithKline to improve care of asthma patients in Colorado's San Luis Valley with educational materials for patients and hands-on training for primary health care teams.

Reports show that 14-percent of school-aged children in the San Luis Valley have been diagnosed with asthma by a health care provider, compared to a national average of 9.5 percent.

In response to this need, Conejos County Hospital, the San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center and Valley-Wide Health Systems Inc have partnered with National Jewish Health to develop a program known as "Quality Asthma Care in the San Luis Valley."
