Healthy Indoor Environments
The proposed project will target Greater Austin area school districts and seek to reduce the burden of asthma on local communities by improving asthma management skills of students, parents, school staff, and other community members, while improving indoor air quality in schools and increasing asthma awareness throughout schools and communities. Expected results from hospitalization, and the number of reported asthma attacks in children related to uncontrolled asthma. These projected outcomes will be measured to assess the effectiveness of the intervention. A discussion of chosen evaluation methods will be provided in Sections 2 and 5.
