2. Meet your department community service requirements.
3. Build your resume and be a more competitive job applicant.
4. People with asthma, especially in neighborhoods near LIU with fewer education resources need your help.
5. Save a life - someone you help may now be able to avoid an asthma attack or may be able to help someone else manage their asthma better.
6. Reduce the number of preventable asthma deaths and visits to the emergency room!
7. Your coaches, parents, siblings, friends, co-workers, classmates and professors will be so proud of you!
