MD nonprofit seeks kids with asthma for study, offers stipend and free home improvements
The National Center for Healthy Housing, a non-profit located in Columbia, is seeking children with asthma between the ages of 5 and 16 for a study on improving indoor air quality. Children must live in a single-family home or townhome, and must be covered under private health insurance (includes plans under the Affordable Care Act).
Participants will receive a stipend of up to $350 for the year-long study, and some in the study group will receive free home improvements related to indoor air quality.
For full details, and to enroll by the May 31, 2016 deadline, visit the study website.
