The research poster aimed to educate young adults on the benefits of smoking cessation on decreasing the symptoms of their asthma condition by analyzing an article on the topic. This report was done for a Chronic Disease Prevention class, but it also built on a previous case study that was written on asthma prevalence in children. The poster is displayed below to better showcase the skills and purpose of the piece.
