Many tribal communities have high rates of asthma. Asthma is a unique medical condition that can benefit from both medical treatment and environmental mitigation. The “From Home to School: Tribal Indoor Air Quality Study” study was designed to determine impact of environmental mitigation /education efforts on asthma symptoms among a sample of 129 tribal children with asthma. The education focused on targeted cleaning and other asthma trigger removal activities, as well as ventilation that reduce concentrations of asthma triggers. The attention to both home and school environments embodies a more complete profile of total exposure of the children, assessed based on home and school investigations, measurements and sampling.
