Project Title & Description
American Lung Association of the SW CO
This award provides funding for the grantee to conduct a "train the trainer" activity where day care managers and early childhood educators (ECE's) will be given instruction on how to provide healthy indoor air information to parents of young children, particularly the parents of asthmatic children. By training the ECE's and day care managers the grantee intends to benefit a greater number of families and asthmatic children than they would if they tried to train the families directly. This activity directly addresses Goal 2 of EPA's Strategic Plan by educating caregivers and children on ways to avoid asthma triggers in the home. As a result of this activity, the populations affected will have improved indoor ai, improved health and a reduction in hospital visits related to asthma care.Time Extension.
