The well being of children in schools has been top priority for school districts. In addition to many health programs in schools, school health based centers in California are going to educate staff and parents on the importance of creating a healthy indoor environment.
In order to reduce asthma attacks at schools, staff and families will learn about asthma treatments. Mold, dust, chemical cleaning products and smoke can trigger asthma attacks in children’s and adults.
A new federal grant will help nurses and doctors who are involved in schools to learn how to better monitor the indoor air quality. Knowing where the problems are and knowing what is causing poor indoor air quality will benefit schools.
How will the California School Health Based Alliance Help Create A Healthy Indoor Environment In Schools?
- Environmental Intervention Guide to help prevent asthma triggers at schools and in homes.
- Training at state conferences will take places. California health based centers will train other school based health centers nationwide.
