Asthma Intervention

El Rio’s Inner-City Asthma Intervention Program is a free program for El Rio pediatric and adult patients. The program includes: asthma education for parents and children; allergy testing; breathing tests; free spacers.

The program includes bilingual/bicultural classes and individual counseling to empower families to provide quality care for their children with asthma.

Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read is a specially integrated healthcare/literacy program.  We encourage our youngest children and their families to read with the help of new, prescribed books given at well-child visits.  Print rich waiting rooms provide a literacy focused environment for parents and children to utilize prior to their medical appointments.
