AJ Salkoski will describe the methods of building a successful home-based intervention project in rural Alaska. Alaska Native children experience some of the highest rates of respiratory illness ever documented. Through home-based interventions (including both modifications to homes and educational activities), The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) project staff were able to create a model for how to build a project team and deliver a service to attempt to improve the respiratory health of at-risk children through improving the indoor air quality in their homes. AJ will describe the methods for how ANTHC created and executed this project.
