The University of Pittsburgh Asthma Institute understands the importance of bridging the gaps between communities and organizations, and we make it our priority to actively participate in a variety of outreach events and health fairs throughout the city. Our main goal is to provide quality health information and services for the benefit of the community. The events we take part in help us spread the word of our institute and the opportunities it offers. At most events, we carry a portable Spirometer to perform free breathing tests. A physician can then read the results from the test and answer any questions participants may have. We also provide plenty of education material on asthma as well as opportunities to volunteer for clinical research studies.

Through these outreach programs, we have been able to build partnerships with the East Liberty Family Health Care Center, the Birmingham Free Clinic and Rodman Street Missionary Baptist Church and we would be happy to extend our free services to your establishment. Please feel free to browse the events page to learn more about the work we are doing to help asthma and allergy sufferers and don't forget to take a look at the many photos and videos of past events.
