CAMBA's Breathe Well program is designed to address the widespread incidence of asthma in low-income communities of color in Brooklyn. The program seeks to improve the quality of life for people with asthma and reduce the cost of asthma treatment through the use of Asthma Health Coaches. These Coaches will conduct home visits to assess for conditions that negatively affect individuals with asthma; provide education around best practices on asthma; provide advocacy and connection to resources to remediate conditions that exacerbate asthma; and work with clients' providers on developing asthma action plans that include medical treatment and control of environmental triggers. By providing the tools for successful self-management, CAMBA aims to ensure that people with asthma can lead healthy, active lives.
