Asthma Environmental Intervention Guide for School-Based Health Centers

The purpose of this guide is to support school-based health center staff in leading or supporting evidence-based strategies and promising practices to reduce exposure to environmental asthma triggers. Although there is a broad array of evidence-based interventions to address asthma triggers, many people with asthma continue to be exposed to the factors that make their asthma worse. School-based health centers (SBHCs) are uniquely positioned to address this gap in order to help children breathe easier. While many SBHCs across the country are already playing a key role in helping students manage their asthma by providing quality clinical care and education there is an opportunity for SBHCs to also be leaders in managing the environmental factors that make asthma worse.

Asthma Environmental Intervention Guide for School-Based Health Centers  was developed by Regional Asthma Management & Prevention (RAMP), a project of the Public Health Institute in partnership with the California School-Based Health Alliance.
