Improving Asthma Outcomes in Minority Children

This study in Pediatrics reports on the results of an experimental program in Milwaukee that uses trained parent mentors to help other parents care for their young child's asthma. This led to a reduction in wheezing, asthma exacerbations, emergency room visits, and missed work days, while improving parents' competence in recognizing breathing problems that are controllable at home, all at a reasonable cost.
