Peer Health Exchange
Peer Health Exchange’s mission is to empower young people with the knowledge, skills, and resources to make healthy decisions. We do this by training college students to teach a 13 session skills-based health curriculum to NYC 9th graders. Last year we partnered with 45 high schools reaching over 5,800 students. Over half our schools have a SBHC and we work to connect students to care to help boost enrollment and utilization.
NYSDOH Asthma Control Program/Asthma Quality Improvement Collaborative (AQIC)
The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Asthma Control Program will be coordinating an Asthma Quality Improvement Collaborative (AQIC) focused on improving the delivery of comprehensive asthma control services to pediatric patients with asthma in NYS. The AQIC will aim to support the translation of the “National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Expert Panel Report 3: Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma” (2007) into practice to improve the diagnosis, management and health outcomes for children with asthma. Formal recruitment of clinical practice team sites, including school-based health centers, for the 2018-2019 AQIC is scheduled to begin in Spring 2018 for practice-site engagement from Summer 2018 through Fall 2019. If your site is interested in improving asthma-related health outcomes for your patients, please stop by the NYSDOH table to learn more! There will also be hard copies of new Asthma publications so please stop by if you would like copies of those as well!
