Wednesday, October 29, 2008: 10:30 AM
This program combines a series of analyses about child health indicators including asthma and obesity as well as poverty. Factors are at the individual, family and community level and are differentially modifiable depending on the nature of the program. These findings provide important insights what programs to address these issues should take into consideration.
Session Objectives: Discuss different relationships between childhood obesity and individual behaviors and family status Describe approaches of imputing of child poverty Describe the association between asthma and insurance type.
