Description

The city of Chicago has some major problems when it comes to the health of children. Chicago leads the nation with the highest number of lead poisoned children, and the resources it has to combat the problem are not enough. The Chicago area is "the nation's epicenter for the asthma epidemic." Yet, there are no comprehensive asthma awareness programs in the city, and officials have no way to find or monitor affected children until they end up in a hospital. African-American and Hispanic children are the most affected by the lead and asthma problems facing Chicago.
