The Fresno Asthma Project : A model intervention to control asthma in multiethnic, low-income, inner-city communities.
The Fresno Asthma Project targeted the entire low-income, inner-city, multiethnic population of Fresno, California.

Small group patient education was made available and provided in age-and culturally appropriate formats to patients/families in clinics, hospitals, and schools.
General and ethnic media and a Speakers Bureau were used to raise public awareness of asthma as a serious but controllable health problem.
