Event description
Asthma is the leading chronic illness of childhood, disproportionately affecting low income children.

About this event

Asthma is the most common chronic disease of childhood often occurring before the age of 5. The exact cause of asthma is unknown, but we know that certain conditions in homes can produce “asthma triggers” such as certain types of dust, mold, and chemicals can invoke an asthma attack. Dr. Kenneth Gruber is a Research Scientist at the Center for Housing and Community Studies and is the author of "Removing asthma triggers and improving children's health: The Asthma Partnership Demonstration project." Dr. Gruber will be hosting a panel of local and regional experts on housing and health. This panel discussion will focus on the unhealthy side of housing as a potential cause of asthma and asthma incidents. The panel will involve individuals with different perspectives on issues relating to the connection of housing conditions and childhood asthma including medical, family, housing quality, and other housing environmental conditions.
