This proposal will address the existent gaps in the literature by identifying barriers and facilitators to participation in physical activity in inner-city minority elementary schoolchildren with asthma, more that half of whom are also overweight; developing and refining a school-based intervention in partnership with the community to improve physical activity; and conducting a pilot randomized controlled trial of the intervention to determine feasibility and obtain preliminary data for a future large-scale trial.
|Intervention model||single group assignment|
|Primary purpose||health services research|
