Ronald McDonald Care Mobile

The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, with asthma specialists on board, visits three schools in the Woodland Hills School District, providing education, clinic visits, and pulmonary function testing of children with asthma who may not be able to reach a Children’s Hospital location easily. The Care Mobile visits each school twice per school year.
