Open Airways for Schools in New Mexico Clean Air Act Section 103
The American Lung association of Southwest (ALASW) in New Mexico (ALANM) will address "Indoor Environmental Asthma triggers - Education and exposure reduction through implementation of the ALA's Open Airways for Schools (OAS) program for elementary-school children with asthma. The program equips children ages 8-11, as well as their parents and caregivers, with the tools and support they need to better manage their asthma.

Anticipated intermediate environmental outcomes of healthy homes and Indoor Air Quality ( IAQ) training include increased knowledge of burden of asthma, community resources, and increased use of environmental histories and/or assessments. Anticipated long-term environmental outcomes of healthy homes and IAQ training include an increase in the number of community healthcare providers adopting institutionalized approaches to the environmental management of asthma. This project focuses on healthcare providers serving these at-risk communities that will lead to potential cultural implications and culturally appropriate outreach to increase the environmental management of asthma.
