CAA Special Purpose Activities - Primary Care for Better Air
The grantee will conduct a culturally competent primary care provider conference to educate health professionals on how to assist low-income and disproportionately impacted children and adults with asthma and their families living in communities along the Arizona-Sonora border in reducing exposure to indoor environmental asthma triggers. The one-day conference will increase primary health care providers' awareness of: (1) clinical complications of environmental asthma trigger exposure; and (2) strategies to reduce exposure to indoor environmental asthma triggers by incorporating environmental exposure management to asthma care. By training health professionals who will in turn train children, teachers and care-givers in the recognition of indoor environmental asthma triggers, and how to use no-cost / low-cost methods to remedy them, the applicant will achieve their goal of reducing the incidence and severity of asthma episodes and death and improving the indoor environment. This award provides federal funding in the amount of $19,000. Preaward costs have been approved back to 1/10/2010.
