Collaborations and Partnership Webinar: Asthma Pilot Project for Head Start October 24th, 2011, from 1:00-2:30pm EST

Join the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Georgia Department of Public Health to learn about their partnership and collaborative effort to conduct outreach and deliver environmental health risk reduction messages related to environmental asthma triggers in Head Start and Child Care settings.

Through the Care for Their Air: Asthma Pilot Project, a partnership was formed to develop outreach strategies that would increase awareness and educate staff and families about environmental health risk factors to young children and to facilitate access to resources that could be integrated easily into ongoing Head Start and Child Care program activities. By providing staff and families with information about comprehensive asthma environmental management practices and secondhand smoke prevention, children will be less at risk and live in healthier environments.

Participants of this webinar will:

  • Learn about the methods to create partnerships with federal, state and local agencies and how to increase capacity to serve Head Start and Child Care communities.
  • Discover how to adapt the training module used in the pilot project and integrate asthma education into Head Start and Child Care program activities for staff, parents and children.
  • Find out about the measures used to evaluate the pilot activities and training.
