Inhaled Medication Resource Allocation for the Luke Society Clinic

Jose Rojas, PhD, RRT
Brian K. Walsh, PhD
Respiratory Care

The Luke Society Street Clinic in partnership with UTMB has provided health services to the uninsured in Galveston for 43 years.On average, 40 patients are seen at the clinic each Saturday morning. Of those, approximately 20-30% have lung disease. These patients have limited medical histories, and the current diagnostic capabilities of the clinic were limited to physician assessment. This project adds the diagnostic tool of spirometry to accurately identify individuals suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or asthma. Additionally, metered dose inhalers will be given to patients most in need. Inhaled bronchodilators and steroid medications will also be purchased with award funds and added to the clinic’s formulary.
