Project Title & Description
Surveys, Studies, Investigations, Demonstrations and Special Purpose Activities
This award provides funds for the recipient to improve the indoor air quality of the homes and day care centers of asthmatic children througout South Dakota through an education and outreach campaign. The education campaign will target day care givers on recognizing asthma symptoms in children and identifying and removing asthma triggers in day cares. The day care providers will then pass on their training and knowledge to the parents of asthmatic children under their care. The parents can then use the information to improve their home environments. By targeting day care providers, who will then pass on information to the parents, the recipient will be able to benefit a larger population with a limited budget.
