UniCare Health Plan of West Virginia Providing Assistance for Asthma Education Training
Date:3/12/2009

Well-known for its preventive care initiatives, state's largest Medicaid managed care plan is collaborating with the American Lung Association to provide medical professionals the opportunity to become certified in conducting Breathe Well, Live Well program

CHARLESTON, W.Va., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Lung Association of West Virginia (ALAWV) and UniCare Health Plan of West Virginia, Inc. (UniCare) are conducting an asthma education training session today, and UniCare is drawing from its vast health care network to provide health professionals from across the state to participate.

The training is part of a national effort by the American Lung Association that aims to reduce illness and disability due to asthma by training health care professionals to conduct workshops with the intent of improving asthma knowledge and self-management skills. Breathe Well, Live Well is the title of the effort and is based upon an intervention program developed by the University of Alabama at Birmingham Lung Health Center.

Similar to efforts involving the innovative Weight Watchers collaboration and body mass index (BMI) training for West Virginia physicians and clinical staff, UniCare recognized a serious problem and took the means to help alleviate the situation. It's part of UniCare's campaign, "Educate and Innovate."

"Although many people may not realize it, the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists West Virginia with one of the highest asthma rates in the nation, and while asthma is a chronic disease, with proper and consistent management, it can be controlled to avoid added medical care," said Mitch Collins, regional director for UniCare. "The workshops that will be conducted as a result of this training will help not only UniCare members, but all West Virginians."
