Project Information

A social media strategy for reducing pediatric visits for asthma by five percent

Project Description: As part of the 2017-2018 Advanced Leadership Fellowship, we have the opportunity to implement a community health improvement project. Our team has chosen to focus on reducing pediatric ED visits for asthma with a reduction goal of 5% over the next fiscal year. Initially, we will develop a public-facing Facebook page that will eventually be maintained by the UF Health Pediatric Asthma Center of Excellence (PACE) Committee. The page will include instructional videos with UF Health asthma experts, daily tips from PACE committee members, and instructional/educational fliers.
