A few years before Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia launched the Community Asthma Prevention Program (CAPP) in 1997, our colleagues in the Emergency Department sent weekly tallies of how many patients from CHOP’s original off-site primary care practice at 39th Street came to the ED for asthma-related problems.
The Community Asthma Prevention Program Plus (CAPP+) Home Repairs Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has been named the inaugural Asthma Community Champion by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Mid-Atlantic Region’s Asthma Program.
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia today announced that Tyra Bryant-Stephens, MD has been appointed Senior Director of its Center for Health Equity. In this new role, Dr. Bryant-Stephens will lead the development and execution of a bold strategic plan to address the impact of healthcare disparities in Philadelphia and beyond.
Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is proud to announce a partnership with The Enterprise Center, in conjunction with Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation (PHDC), to build the number of licensed contractors in Philadelphia and expand CHOP’s Community Asthma Prevention Program Plus Home Repairs (CAPP+) initiative.
