Around 25 million Americans have asthma, including approximately 6 million children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The disease disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minorities. Compared with whites, African Americans and Hispanics/Latinos are more likely to have asthma, have worse health outcomes, use more healthcare services, and are at greater risk of death from asthma.

Health Conditions Health Conditions These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
