Asthma is the most common cause of disability among children in the U.S. and the leading cause of school absences due to chronic disease. School-based health centers (SBHCs) are uniquely positioned to help children breathe easier. This webinar will showcase interventions that school-based health care staff have implemented across the nation to reduce exposure to environmental asthma triggers and more effectively manage asthma. Tools and resources from the Regional Asthma Management and Prevention’s Asthma Environmental Intervention Guide to address environmental triggers as part of a comprehensive asthma care strategy will be shared as well. Finally, an exciting new funding opportunity will be announced for school-based health care teams who are interested in implementing environmental asthma interventions at their SBHCs.
