$4M grant to improve asthma care for So Cal Latino youth
Date:3/6/2014

al County asthma research project, also known as the Imperial County Asthma CER Project, will evaluate a multifaceted approach to improve asthma control and minimize complications among children with asthma. This collaborative will work to improve patients', families' and healthcare providers' adherence to treatment guidelines. Community health workers will visit families' homes to develop tailored asthma management strategies and help families identify ways to control environmental triggers.

That leads to better adherence, which leads to improved quality of life." She and Elder are professors at SDSU's Graduate School of Public Health.

In addition to assessing asthma control, the researchers will determine whether the project is successful in minimizing the impact of the illness on the family, in terms of reducing absences from school and work, and improving the family's quality of life.

"Through these awards, we're supporting efforts to discover the most effective ways to bring asthma under control in populations that are suffering the most," said Romana Hasnain-Wynia, director of PCORI's Addressing Disparities Program. "Compared to other populations in the United States, racial and ethnic minorities experience the highest rates of uncontrolled asthma and its ill effects, which include missed school and work days and anxious trips to the emergency department."

Not all types of asthma care may be optimal for all populations, and treatments beneficial to some groups may be less beneficial to others. Moreover, resea
