Healthy Homes I Asthma Project
The Healthy Homes I Asthma Project was a demonstration project to reduce exposure to indoor asthma triggers among 300 low-income households of children with asthma. Outreach workers made an initial assessment visit, followed by nine visits over the next year. Outreach workers offered a comprehensive package of education and social support, encouragement of behavior changes, provision of materials to reduce exposures (bedding covers, vacuums, door mats, cleaning kits), and help in locating assistance for making structural improvements to reduce moisture. Community volunteers from the Master Home Environmentalist Program worked with households for an additional year. The Principal Investigator for this project was James Krieger, MD, MPH, Chief, Public Health Epidemiology, Planning and Evaluation Unit.
