Chambers County School District To Partner With Auburn University For Rural Health Outreach

The Chambers County School District partnered with the Auburn University School of Nursing to host a successful rural health outreach pop-up clinic for managing childhood asthma.

The Childhood Asthma Management clinic was hosted in LaFayette at the ALFA building during the afternoon of Thursday, September 15th. A special thanks to Mr. Steve Wheeler and ALFA Insurance for donating space for the childhood asthma clinic to take place.

Visiting students completed an asthma assessment questionnaire and were provided with a gift bag from Asthma Camp Eagle. Each student received a spacer and a peak flow meter to assist them with managing their own asthma. The goal of this outreach is to promote and support rural health pop-up clinics in the LaFayette community.
