In this project ACHIA developed a home visiting component based on an evidence-based model that integrates clinical care and public health practice in which Health Home Care coordinators visit patients in their homes to help identify and remediate asthma triggers, provide culturally appropriate self-management education and coordinate care.  Below are resources developed for Health Homes care coordinators and practice staff.  Curriculum and resources were developed by the following ACHIA faculty members:

  • Terri Magruder, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine, University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • Katy McMullen, MSW, LICSW, AE-C, Medical Social Worker, Children’s of Alabama
