Reducing Asthma Triggers
This project will target school leaders and parents on reducing asthma triggers in sensitive populations in Holyoke and Springfield, MA. Specifically, this project will address school-aged children with asthma by providing a training and advocacy program for top school leadership (school district staff, school committee members, and principals) to develop and implement district-wide policies and procedures to improve indoor and outdoor air quality at schools. This project will also educate parents and caregivers of children with asthma and recruit parent asthma champions to work with Partners for a Healthier Community on school leadership advocacy/education efforts. Project outputs will include presentations to school leaders and parents/caregivers; at least 5,000 parents/caregivers receiving materials and information, 200 of whom will participate in presentations/events; at least 2 parents/caregivers participating in advocacy efforts with school leadership; 8 asthma sessions presented 65 students by 8 teams of 2 nursing students each; and at least 1 new district-wide policy to reduce risk factors for asthma onset and/or exacerbations.
