PRCHN Seminar: “Evaluating Asthma Risk in Childhood to Plan Community-Engaged Interventions”

The Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods (PRCHN) will host its next seminar Wednesday, June 8, at noon via Zoom.

In this seminar, titled “Evaluating Asthma Risk in Childhood to Plan Community-Engaged Interventions,” presenters will discuss a local initiative to develop a geographic information system to link comprehensive social determinants data with health information to support community-engaged health improvement efforts for children with asthma. By the end of the seminar, participants will be able to understand social risk factors for childhood asthma disparities, describe the potential benefits of engaging non-clinical data partners in health research, and identify successful strategies for similar future endeavors.

The presenters will be:

  • Sarah Ronis, director of the University Hospitals Rainbow Center for Child Health and Policy and assistant professor of pediatrics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine;
  • Maria Masotya, senior research coordinator at University Hospitals Rainbow Center for Child Health and Policy; and
  • Megan Salas Atwell, associate director of the Center on Poverty and Community Development at Case Western Reserve.

This will be the last PRCHN Seminar of the 2021-22 academic year; sessions will resume again in September.

The seminar series is co-sponsored by the Community and Collaboration Core of the Clinical and Translational Science Collaborative at CWRU.
