Managing Environmental Triggers of Asthma
To address the prevalence of childhood asthma at the Texas-Mexico border, the Office of Special Programs (OSP) at the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health proposes to develop a train-the-trainer program for Community Health Workers (CHWs), also called Promotores, on managing the environmental triggers of asthma that arise in indoor environments. Using this approach will allow for greater reach, as each of the participants will use what they learned to go out and teach others in their communities.

The objectives of this proposed program are threefold:
1. Develop a face-to-face, bilingual training on the environmental management of asthma for Promotores/ CHWs using a train-the-trainer approach that is culturally sensitive and educationally appropriate.
2. Deliver the training in four separate sites in the Texas-Mexico border area.
3. Evaluate the effectiveness, quality, and reach of the trainings.
