Detroit News reporter Michael Martinez attended Molina Healthcare's Community Health and Fun Festival on April 29 and wrote about how we’re working with Molina to keep kids with asthma out of the Emergency Room – and in school where they belong.
Asthma affects some 40,000 children in Detroit.

Our two mobile clinics work closely with schools to get children’s asthma symptoms under control.
