  • Puff City II - Rural Georgia

    PI: Martha S. Tingen, MSN, PhD

    Puff City Rural Georgia takes the existing Puff City II intervention and applies it to a youth population in rural Georgia. Puff City is a successful NHLBI-funded study that targeted three key asthma management issues: 1) smoking; 2) controller medication adherence; and 3) carrying a rescue inhaler. Given the success of Puff City among mid-western, inner city youth, an important question is whether such a program can be transplanted and effective for youth living in a different environment, the rural south. Rural Georgia youth are at equal or greater risk from asthma symptoms as inner city, Detroit youth. (08/01/2009 - 05/31/2012)
