CLC’s BUILD Health DC Partnership

Today, a child with asthma in Ward 7 and 8 is 20 times more likely to end up in the emergency room for asthma than a child living in Ward 3. This must change. Focusing on the intersection of pediatric health and housing conditions law, BUILD Health DC and our project to reduce childhood asthma is a nationally replicable model that leverages medical expertise, legal support, and funding from Managed Care Organizations, to find real solutions to asthma in low-income neighborhoods in Southeast DC.
