Dr. Beck uses census data to explore ways to predict asthma outcomes and identify asthma “hot spots” in Cincinnati. Additionally, he has formed a partnership with the Cincinnati Health Department. Currently, he has started a project entitled CLEAR (Collaboration to Lessen Environmental Asthma Risks), a means of linking children with environmental risks to code enforcement visits. Dr. Beck has also helped to start the KIND (Keeping Infants Nourished and Developing) program, a partnership with the Freestore Foodbank devoted to providing hungry infants with formula.
