  • assessing the number of families screened and prevalence of reported environmental issues,
  • tracking referrals to community resources to address environmental asthma triggers,
  • investigating the success of home visits in addressing pest management at the homes of referred families,
  • assessing barriers to referral completion, tracking asthma outcomes in children who received home-based asthma interventions as a result of the screening program, and support the development of an asthma outcome tracking system in referred families.
 
Requirements:
  • Education: Master’s Degree in Public Health or related field (concurrent enrollment into MPH is acceptable) is preferred
