  Community Health
The Center's goal is to develop collaborative relationships with individuals and organizations based on principles of cultural sensitivity, service-learning, community-generated identification of research priorities, and the development of sustainable community assets (e.g. skills, services, knowledge of health outcomes). Researchers in this group will examine:

The effect of health care delivery systems and treatments on communities;
The health of entire communities, including the uninsured and under-served;
How to work with communities to develop joint research and action agendas.

In 2001, the Institute for Health & Aging, School of Nursing, was awarded $3.6 million by The California Endowment for a 3 1/2 year Continuous Quality Improvement Program targeting providers of high volume services to school-aged children with asthma in high need California communities. The California Asthma Among the School-Aged Project (CAASA) intends to demonstrate a decrease in asthma morbidity and improved quality of life for school-aged children with asthma and their families by linking improved clinical care to the community.
