Guidelines to Practice (G2P): Reducing Asthma Health Disparities through Guideline Implementation (2014-2017)
The purpose of G2P is to help children and adults with asthma. The goal of the study is to work with clinics, health plans, and with patients in their homes to improve asthma care. The focus of this program is on low-income and minority asthma patients: these patients are affected on a larger scale by asthma.
