Housing Is Working Group: Insights from the Mobility Asthma Project

Sep 12, 2023
Housing Is Working Group, Johns Hopkins University researchers
This webinar will describe new research that shows children whose families participated in a program that helped them move from distressed neighborhoods to areas with lower rates of poverty experienced significant improvements in severe asthma episodes. Before moving, for every 100 children, there were approximately 88 severe asthma attacks per year. After moving, there were approximately 40 severe attacks per year, a reduction of more than 50%. The webinar will explore factors that help explain these changes in asthma, including the critical role of neighborhood-related stress, and describes future direction and pilot programs.
