Kathleen Shanovich, NP, Awarded Asthma Grant

Congratulations to Kathleen Shanovich and collaborators with the AFCH Asthma Advocacy Program, Madison Metropolitan School District, and UW Health Pediatrics, who were awarded a Wisconsin Asthma Coalition mini grant in the amount of $9,995 for the project entitled, “Comprehensive asthma control through evidence-based strategies and public health-health care collaboration.” This 11-month award will help provide asthma education/school management to new school nurses via a 3-hour educational program, as well as ongoing asthma support/case management to “seasoned” and new nurses. This mini grant would provide salary support for an allergy/asthma advanced practice nurse to coordinate this program, as well as funds to purchase asthma model airways for school nurses to use to provide asthma education to students.
