DESIGN NARRATIVE:

Forty-two (42) elementary schools in urban Baltimore and Washington, DC, served as recruitment sites and approximately 300 students with moderate to severe asthma were enrolled.

They were offered a menu of educational offerings to improve their knowledge and skills. The primary outcome measure was emergency care use. Secondary measures included physician practices, hospitalization, health care utilization, restricted activities, medication use, school absences and coping skills.
