CHEC Evaluates Childhood Asthma in Pittsburgh


The Center for Healthy Environments and Communities (CHEC) in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health was awarded $30,000 from Healthy Home Resources of Pittsburgh to evaluate a childhood asthma prevention program designed to identify and remediate in-home environmental exposures that can trigger asthma attacks.
