The main aim of this study is to investigate the effects of biopsychosocial factors (e.g., everyday family life, perceived and physiological stress of self and others, daily behaviors), genetic factors, and asthmatic state on asthma health, biological processes related to asthma, and health more broadly. In this study, we are also interested in understanding the impact of caregiving on cardiometabolic health and children's biological and psychological responses to puberty and acute stress.
