Biography

Dr. Halterman cares for primary care patients in the pediatric clinic, precepts residents and teaches students in the clinic, and covers the inpatient services for 2-4 weeks per year.

Research

Dr. Halterman's primary research interest is to improve the delivery of preventive care for underserved children with asthma. Asthma is the most common chronic illness of childhood. While national guidelines recommend daily preventive medications for all children with persistent asthma, studies indicate that many children in the U.S. who should receive these medications are not receiving them. Although young urban children suffer the largest burden from asthma, they are the least likely group to receive adequate preventive care. Thus, there is a substantial amount of suffering that could be prevented with improvements in care. The goal of the Preventive Care Program for Urban Children with Asthma is to develop and test sustainable models for identifying and treating children and adolescents with this all too common disease.
