Asthma 101--The Basics for School Personnel
Asthma 101 is a one-hour program designed to increase the awareness of basic asthma management in the school setting. The program is targeted for K-12 faculty, support staff, parents and volunteers.
Open Airways for Schools (OAS)
OAS is one of the only two asthma intervention programs recognized by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention as a scientifically-proven program that works. Open Airways focuses on teaching children with asthma between the ages 8 and 11 how to manage their disease effectively. Research shows that this is the age when children can begin to make many important and life-saving decisions about their health.
The American Lung Association-Southeast Region is scheduled to conduct facilitator training for the Open Airways for Schools programs on November 17, 2006 in Columbia, South Carolina. The American Lung Association is offering a limited number of training scholarships to school personnel and volunteers interested in becoming facilitators for this program. For more information about the upcoming OAS training and other American Lung Association Programs, please contact Shanda Taylor, Regional Director for the American Lung Association-Southeast Region at 803-779-5864, 803-254-2711 (fax) or email@example.com
