Presenters from California Breathing (CB), the asthma program in the California Department of Public Health, will introduce materials developed by two Head Start programs. CB’s collaborative partnerships focus on the identification of class- room asthma triggers, reduction or elimination of the triggers, and environmental education for teachers and parents. Presenters will also facilitate discussions on how this project can be implemented in additional HS programs to promote school readiness.


Participants will…


• Be able to describe the burden of asthma in the Head Start population and to identify common asthma triggers found in the classroom.


• Be able to articulate two different approaches to identifying and reducing or eliminating common environmental asthma triggers in the classroom.


• Be able to evaluate the need for asthma interventions in their own Head Start programs.
