TIPS FOR SUCCESS! School-Based Health Centers: Leaders in Reducing Environmental Asthma Triggers

In 2015, Regional Asthma Management & Prevention (RAMP) and California School-Based Health Alliance (CSHA) developed the Asthma Environmental Intervention Guide for School-Based Health Centers, describing five broad strategies for reducing environmental asthma triggers: education, case management, improving indoor air quality in schools, improving home environments, and improving outdoor air quality. Since that time, we have supported twenty-seven SBHCs across the country in implementing these interventions. Based on their experiences, we have identified six key tips to follow, regardless of which intervention you choose. This document shares lessons learned, best practices, and tips for success.
