ECHO-Chicago: Complex Pediatric Asthma-October 2018

October 18, 2018 to January 24, 2019
In the United States 1 in 11 children is diagnosed with asthma making it the most common chronic childhood condition. High rates of emergency department visits and hospitalizations due to asthma indicate subpar management. This is particularly true in Chicago where there is double the national average of asthma mortality in children and high rates of irreversible bronchial obstruction. A disproportionate amount of urban, minority, and underserved youth are affected by asthma. Black children in Chicago have 2-3 times higher prevalence rates and are less likely to receive recommended care than whites or Hispanics. If evidence-based asthma care guidelines are routinely followed, this morbidity and mortality is preventable.
 
The ECHO-Chicago: Complex Pediatric Asthma series aims to increase the use of best practices for pediatric asthma in the community and to improve health outcomes for low-income children suffering with asthma in Chicago.
