I am really pleased to share with you an article that was just published that demonstrates a positive return on investment for CHW home visits with children who have asthma. This work was done at Public Health Seattle & King County where Jim Krieger has documented the effectiveness of CHWs in addressing asthma many times. I believe that this article showing a rigorous ROI analysis will add an important piece to the body of knowledge around the effectiveness of CHWs.

Please share widely. http://ajph.aphapublications.org/toc/ajph/0/0
