CSR gave technical assistance to Jose Mattos, MD-MPH student at UVa., for a project analyzing data on ear, nose and throat diagnoses from the National Ambulatory Care Survey, a large, annual data collectiion funded by CDC. The study focused on changes over time in presentation of asthma and other complaints, separating data by demographic groups.
