This session will discuss a study that assessed effects of targeted education campaigns on asthma symptoms among a sample of tribal children with asthma. Three tribes in different regions were involved with the study: Cherokee Nation, Nez Perce Tribe and Navajo Nation. The education efforts focused on targeted cleaning and other asthma trigger removal activities, as well as ventilation that reduce concentration of asthma triggers. The attention to both school and home environments embodies a more complete profile of total exposure of the children throughout the day.
