Later that week I'll be talking about AIR Louisville at the Louisville Digital Association’s monthly meeting. If you've never been to an LDA meeting, mark your calendar for Thursday, Nov. 12 at 6 pm. This informal, high energy group always attracts an interesting crowd of designers, entrepreneurs, engineers and writers. The meeting will be at the PriceWeber office at 10701 Shelbyville Road.
I'm proud to announce that Seven Counties and WHAS 11 are our two newest partners. These two Louisville institutions will be working with the AIR Louisville team to enroll employees in our community asthma program. I want to thank Linda Danna at WHAS 11 and Becky Mitchell and Dan Smith at Seven Counties for their enthusiasm for our work and for the votes of support.
We have a new partner in the medical community as well. Doctors and nurses at the University of Louisville pediatric clinics will be enrolling some of the youngest asthma patients in our community in AIR Louisville. Thanks to Dr. Gil Liu and Natalie Natalie Pasquenza, BSN,RN,CCRC at the University of Louisville who worked to get this project approved.
We had our first advisory board meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 21. We reviewed the goals for the group, discussed enrollment tactics and watched the PBS NewsHour Weekend story about our program. Our next meeting will be in March 2016.
If you'd like to learn more about the program, you'll have 3 chances in November. I will be on Crescent Hill Radio on Monday, Nov. 9 from 4 - 6. Tune in to WHCQ 100.9 FM to hear my conversation with Tara Bassett. You can listen on your drive home or tune in to the live stream online.
Later that evening, I'll be attending "Prevailing Winds," an original play by the Looking for Lilith theater company. The play is about air quality to Rubbertown and its surrounding communities, as well as how race and class have played into the Louisville community's dialogue and action around these issues. There will be a panel discussion after the performance. I'll be representing the Institute and talking about our air quality work.
