Together We Can April 2020
Dear Friends,
We hope this message finds you, and yours well during this difficult time.

Public Health is a call for all of us to do what we can.

Earth Day's theme this year, Together We Can , calls to us now to do our part to protect the well-being of the vulnerable, the medical providers, the hospital staff and others on the front-lines. We just need to Stay Home .

Please find links below of the newest resources from the Mailman School of Public Health and others. We hope that you may find these useful and share them with your networks, family and friends.

Asthma Can Put You At Greater Risk If You Contract Coronavirus

  • One in four children in Harlem suffer from asthma.

  • Citywide, about 10 percent of adults have asthma.

If you or your child have asthma, please stay at home. People who suffer from asthma are more likely to experience complications from the coronavirus.
Wishing you all safety and health,

Julie and Ricky
