The National Center for Healthy Housing is looking for Maryland families with children suffering from asthma to join an important study about indoor air quality.
The study looks at whether improving indoor air quality at home can:
- reduce asthma symptoms
- reduce asthma attacks
- improve quality of life for children and their parents
This is the first study in the U.S. to examine middle class families in single-family homes. Certain families will receive extensive home improvements—at no cost—designed to improve indoor air quality. All study participants will receive up to $350. The study will last one year.
- have a child with asthma between the ages of 5 to 16
- live in a single-family home or townhome in Maryland
- have private medical insurance (for example, coverage provided by your employer or coverage purchased through the Maryland Health Connection Exchange)
