The PARE facilitates environmental research and education focused on asthma, addressing underserved and minority populations and recognizing the influence that poverty, disproportionate environmental exposures and lack of medical insurance have on those populations.  The PARE maximizes its impact on asthma outcomes through a dual approach based on prevention research and in-home technical interventions with personalized behavioral education for the family.
