Environmental Management of Asthma in Clinical Practice

SSS researchers Jesse Wilkerson and Lydia Feinstein were among the authors of an oral presentation at the 2019 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Annual Meeting. The poster described an examination of clinicians’ environmental control practices in managing their patients’ asthma. Recommendations to avoid dust mites, mold, pests, and air pollution varied, but almost all clinicians recommended avoidance of second-hand tobacco smoke. Other authors of the presentation included researchers from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, University of Connecticut Health Farmington, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Virginia Commonwealth University, Johns Hopkins University, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
