The over-arching, long-term objective of Kim Arcoleo's program of research is to optimize children's asthma health outcomes through evidence-based interventions at the child, family, school, and health care system levels with a focus on the role of culture in health care, mental health co-morbidities, medication adherence, asthma education and case management.

She has built interdisciplinary research teams of experts from the fields of nursing, clinical psychology, public health, social work, education, respiratory therapy, allergy and immunology, pediatrics, and pediatric pulmonology in Phoenix, Ariz., Bronx, N.Y., and Columbus, Ohio.

She has played a key role as PI, co-investigator or research manager in successfully funded research projects totaling more than $24 million from NIH, CDC, and highly competitive private foundations. She also has extensive experience designing, implementing, and managing large scale, longitudinal randomized, controlled, intervention studies in the home, school, and clinical settings.
