We can provide informational materials about environmental exposures and health (asthma triggers, healthy homes, lead poisoning, flood preparedness/response). If our nurse practitioner is available, then we also expect to be able to do some asthma-related testing (e.g., exhaled nitric oxide testing [a breathing test to assess lung inflammation] and/or spirometry). We sometimes partner with the City of Houston to do blood lead testing as well. If you anticipate many children, we can determine whether this would be useful (it's a finger-prick test).
