Extract

The problems of asthma have attracted concern, coupled with a desire to intervene at many levels of care—from voluntary organizations to community-based clinics, and from hospitals to entire health-care systems. The following series of short articles provides insight as to how some of these organizations and health-care institutions in the Chicago area are responding to the problem of asthma morbidity. The programs and activities described in these narratives have not undergone the rigor of formal study and evaluation. Rather, they emphasize that much of the local effort to improve asthma care is occurring outside the scope of academic or scholarly initiatives.
