California Endowment awarded the West Oakland Asthma Coalition and Prescott-Joseph Center a $65,000 grant for 18 months to continue the asthma education program.
Current data from our work in West Oakland schools indicates that the incidence of asthma in school children in West Oakland is 18-20%. The adult incidence is higher, but it is difficult to get an accurate assessment.
Prescott-Joseph Center for Community Enhancement and the West Oakland Asthma Coalition are committed to reeducing or eliminating the pervasive asthma problem in West Oakland. This grant will help us get there. Thank you, CAawment!
