  • Lisa Cauldwell
    Lisa Cauldwell Indoor Air Team Leader

    2005 Lead Safe Indiana Award (now is called the Healthy Homes Award) Presented at the IKE conference. Award was for my work with asthmatics, not for lead activities.

    Comprehensive School-Based Childhood Asthma Intervention Feasibility Study

    A. Johnson MSN, F. Leickly MD, M. Michel MSN, M. Smith PhD., S. Cummings MSW, L. Cauldwell

    (I can’t find where it was actually published by I believe it was in 1998?

    My profession as an indoor air/environmental specialist looks at the home and school environment for conditions that may impact asthma patients.  I get beyond basic bullet points to the more specific problems.

    I am not a certified asthma educator; however I have been working with asthma patients for over 20 years.  I was a founding member of both the Asthma Alliance of Indianapolis (1997) and InJAC.

    I’ve attended numerous workshops, conferences, and webinars on environmental issues and the connection to asthma.  I do not hold specific asthma certifications.

    I’m constantly seeking information about new research and projects on environmental asthma issues.  I do participate in national asthma networks.

    I’ve worked in public health since 1990. I’ve been in homes from the most underprivileged of our community to the most affluent.  Working with different levels of socio-ecological populations on a daily bases and meeting them where they are (both physically and emotionally) is great preparation for being able to address the issues impacting our clients and their asthma.

    I primarily work with adults.  Even if the client of concern is a child, I usually am working with adults about the status of the environment.  I do include things children can do and should avoid from an environmental perspective.

    If it is part of a large group presentation, the larger group sometimes has a pre/post test.  However, I usually do not have a formal evaluation piece for my presentations.  Personal evaluation is how many questions are asked and if request for services increase.

  • Theresa Beanblossom
    Theresa Beanblossom Registered Respiratory Therapist, Certified Asthma Educator | Franciscan Health

    I am a nationally Certified Asthma Educator and also a nationally Certified COPD Educator.

    I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist and I do education as a large part of my job.

    I began as an Asthma Educator in 1997 but didn’t get Certified until 2013.

    I have had my college training in Respiratory Care and then I have had training specifically in Asthma Management.  My Certification is good until 2022.

    I attend Continuing Education events and work closely with my medical director who is a Pulmonologist.

    My training had specific lessons about communications and caring for patients from diverse backgrounds. I have also worked for 32 years with patients from all ethnic, racial, age and socio-economical levels.

    All.  I see parents of infants and toddlers to train them to see signs of respiratory distress in their children.  I teach children of all ages and adults all the way through the elderly.  Some have Asthma and others have COPD or some other chronic lung disease.

    Usually with a survey but also with feedback and participation from my patients.
