Asthma in the Home Environment: The Healthy Homes Approach
November 29, 2012
12:30 - 2:00pm EST


Asthma is the single most avoidable cause of hospital admission, yet it remains among the most common reasons for admission to hospitals for children. Join us to learn more about how asthma impacts our state and how an environmental approach can reduce the burden of this chronic disease. Also featured is an innovative pilot project, Putting on Airs, that uses a community-based approach to asthma control. 

Webinar Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize and discuss the components of Connecticut’s asthma burden
  • Identify environmental agents that trigger asthma symptoms and asthma friendly remediation strategies.
  • Describe the importance of professional education to increase adherence to best practice standards for the identification and reduction of environmental and home asthma triggers through the National Healthy Homes and Asthma Education Programs.
