A Community United to Challenge Asthma
The Sinai's Improving Community Health Survey found that Puerto Rican children had the highest asthma prevalence rate of all groups. Twenty-one percent of Puerto Rican children had diagnosed asthma while another 13% had a positive asthma screen for a potential total asthma burden of 34%. This chapter discusses the lack of specific interventions that target Puerto Rican children, establishment of the Greater Humboldt Park Community of Wellness, and the asthma experience in Humboldt Park as a model of community-based participatory research.
