About Our Community
This community is a space for Housing Is members interested in asthma. Research shows that low-income children and those living in sub-standard housing have asthma in disproportionately high rates. Such health problems can often cause children to miss school and critical developmental time with peers, as well as other long-term life outcomes. The Housing Is initiative stands on the notion that these systems are all interconnected, and it is only through cross-sector collaboration that we will build the partnerships that will help improve lives. Use the features in this community to discuss programs and policies, post research and reports, publicize events, share case studies and best practices, seek input and feedback from fellow members, and connect with others working on asthma.
