Building Asthma Safe Environments
The Pioneer Valley Asthma Coalition's Building Asthma Safe Environments (BASE) project will work with health care providers to promote asthma self-management and integrate evidence-based Healthy Homes principles into existing asthma management services in Springfield, Massachusetts. This project will train eighteen community health workers and nurses about methods of identification, remediation and prevention of environmental exposures in the home that trigger asthma. In addition, the project will identify over eighty families with physician diagnosed asthma for home visits and at least forty of these families will receive a series of follow up visits to reduce asthma environmental exposures.
