About Me

Brief Description of my Real Job
Mike Shoemaker manages the Respiratory Care Services department at the AnMed Health Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Anderson, SC and serves as the Program Coordinator for Asthmania Academy, an Asthma Self-Management Education (ASME) certified pediatric asthma program. He is also the Upstate SC Regional Representative for the South Carolina Asthma Alliance.
Research and Practice Interests
My interests include health disparities, the importance of trust-building between providers and patients, and the development of community-focused asthma initiatives that involve patients/families, primary care physicians, subspecialists, schools/school nurses, community health workers, and others.
Personal Statement
I believe the key to controlling asthma lies in our ability to create and support communities that are equipped to provide guideline-based asthma care and education.
I envision, and want to help create, communities where people with asthma hear consistent, guideline-based, understandable messages from every “person of influence” – which may include other family members, hospital-based providers, school nurses, primary care physicians, the community of faith, retail pharmacists, community health workers, and many others. Mixed messages foster confusion; consistent messages foster trust, learning, and health improvement.
