Kellogg joins asthma fight

Finalists in a new case competition sponsored by the Kellogg School and the CHEST Foundation will help knock the wind out of asthma in Chicago.

The contest is a collaboration among The CHEST Foundation and the Kellogg School's Levy Social Entrepreneurship Lab, Social Impact Club, Health Industry Management Program, and Healthcare and Biotechnology Club.

On May 8, graduate students from Northwestern University and University of Chicago will present new sustainable models to increase the identification, education, prevention and treatment of asthma among underserved populations in Chicago. The city is facing an asthma epidemic, which affects 630,000 children and adults each year. Undiagnosed and untreated asthma is particularly severe among Chicago's least advantaged communities. Judging the contest will be several nationally known leaders in social enterprise and asthma treatment, including former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. C. Everett Koop.
