"SNAP benefits and childhood asthma," co-authored by Colleen Heflin, was published in Social Science & Medicine. The authors explore monthly patterns in children's emergency room (ER) claims for asthma to find out whether these patterns are sensitive to the timing and amount of Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. 11/05/18
