Track: Public Health
Authors: shimrit keddem, Karen Glanz, Frances Barg
Asthma is a complex disease that affects millions of Americans. In this project, we combined quantitative and qualitative data and methods; advanced raster data analysis; and spatial modeling to examine the varying spatial distribution of cumulative risk markers among people with asthma by neighborhood characteristics. Combining these methods enabled us to tell a more complete story about the urban asthma experience.
