Environmental Intervention in Urban Schools and Childhood Asthma

Exposure to mouse allergen/mold/pollutants in the school environment can worsen asthma, even after controlling for home allergen exposures. Dr. Phipatanakul and her team are implementing a school based inter-vention in 12 inner city schools examining the use of enhanced integrated pest management, classroom air purifiers and cleaning with corresponding improvements to asthma morbidity. The researchers hope to learn the best way to design and implement more cost and time efficient school-based environmental interventions that may potentially help a community of children with asthma, allergic diseases, and their associated morbidity.
