WVIZ/ideastream feature Better Health and partner's work in Slavic Village childhood asthma report
November 29, 2018
Childhood asthma is the number one cause of school absence. Better Health and our partners have been aggregating asthma data from the 44127 ZIP code. Our collaborative reporting shows that 26% of children from Slavic Village have an asthma diagnosis — twice as much as kids in suburbs like Westlake or Beachwood. Controlling asthma exacerbations is key and MetroHealth is helping schools cope by bringing clinics and nurses into their buildings. WVIZ/ideastream reports on these findings and services but is also shining a light on the polluters who affect a neighborhood's air quality.

Register for our 4-part series on trauma-informed care
November 14, 2018
Trauma affects the central nervous system. It interferes with a child’s ability to relax and focus, and ultimately shapes how the child sees his or her future. Trauma-focused interventions occur on many different levels. In addition to family and other natural supports, a variety of service systems (child welfare, law enforcement, education, faith-based, health, juvenile justice, mental health, etc.) may become involved in providing informal or formal care to a child. Join us for our 4-part webinar series on trauma-informed care.
