Promoting Asthma Wellness in Rural Communities
Promoting Asthma Wellness in Rural Communities

This is a research study that compares the effectiveness of a web-based program (known as Puff City) and another web-based program (of internet sites such as the American Lung Association, American Academy of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology, etc) that targets five key asthma management issues among rural youth:

  1. Improving adherence to asthma controller medication use;
  2. Improving compliance of carrying a rescue inhaler at all times for use at the first sign of asthma symptoms;
  3. Improving inhaler technique;
  4. Smoking reduction or cessation in those who are smokers; and
  5. Avoidance of second-hand smoke exposure.

A randomized control trial across three southeastern rural high schools comparing a web-based tailored intervention (known as Puff City) to web-based traditional control education sites.

  • Experimental: Puff City GA
    Puff City is an NHLBI-funded (C. Joseph, PI; Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, MI), web-based intervention that targets three key asthma management issues in youth: 1) smoking reduction or cessation in those who are smokers, 2) improving adherence to asthma controller medication use, and 3) improving compliance of carrying a rescue inhaler at all times for use at the first sign of asthma symptoms. Puff City Ga. is a replication study in the rural southeastern United States that adds biological assessments in addition to self-report data.
    Intervention: Behavioral: Puff City GA
  • Active Comparator: General Asthma Education
    Students will be directed to generic public websites on asthma and smoking that contain helpful information on general asthma management.
