Learning objectives:
At the end of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  • Provide an overview of definitions and distinctions in terminology necessary to address health disparities, as well as documented disparities in pediatric asthma and multi-level contributors to variations in asthma outcomes in children

  • Discuss data that inform a theoretical framework for understanding pediatric asthma disparities as a model that can be applied to understanding the etiology of disparities in mental health and other chronic health conditions

  • Present an understanding of the range of studies administered by the Childhood Asthma Research Program to identify contributors to pediatric asthma disparities and ultimately improve asthma outcomes and relevant co-morbidities (e.g., poor sleep, obesity, psychiatric symptoms) in this high-risk group
