Erin Lee is a community-based educator working mainly in non-formal educational contexts, teaching about asthma management. She is currently a clinical research coordinator at the Medical College of Wisconsin leading research in homes and in childcare centers on indoor air quality and its relation to asthma. Additionally, she is a board member of a local nonprofit, Fight Asthma Milwaukee Allies, that engages the community in supporting patients and their caregivers with asthma education and environmental assessments. Erin’s research interests lie in sustainable approaches to education and community building. She seeks to shift her perspective to the asthma challenge from outcomes-based medical research toward system’s-based problem solving. Education within healthcare contexts should be reimagined to facilitate transformative learning and a sustainable commitment to equity, social justice and community while fostering ecological literacy and the broad understanding of relationships to natural systems. When she is not working on asthma education partnerships and programming, Erin walks in the park daily with her dog and builds community among neighbors and other dog walkers. She grows plants for food and flowers, indoors and out, and is always planning the next warm water SCUBA adventure.
