      EPA's Back-to-School Webinar:
      Managing Asthma in Schools

      -

      Tuesday, September 24, 2013, from 2 – 3 p.m. EDT.

      Register Now for the Mold
and Moisture Contol in Schools webinar

      Register to hear from two environmental health leaders who engaged their school districts to take action on asthma.

      Are you interested in expanding your approaches for improving the indoor air quality (IAQ) in schools to help students and staff manage their asthma? If so, join this webinar to learn how two innovative asthma programs with unique challenges have worked to improve asthma outcomes in their local schools. This webinar will feature:

      1. A school nurse from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who champions asthma management for her district and will share tips and lessons learned for flood preparedness; and
      2. A professor from University of Turabo, Puerto Rico, who leads innovative interventions in over a hundred schools facing some of the highest asthma rates in the U.S.

      Both speakers will discuss the ways in which their programs are grounded in EPA’s IAQ Tools for Schools guidance. 

      -

      Speakers:

      • Laura Wheeler, RN, School Nurse, Cedar Rapids School District, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has led the charge in her school district to address IAQ issues that exacerbate asthma symptoms, including addressing the challenges raised by the record-breaking Iowa floods of 2008. Learn how Ms. Wheeler secures leadership buy-in and uses the National Association of School Nurses’ Managing Asthma Triggers program to build awareness of asthma triggers within school environments. 

      • Teresa Lipsett-Ruiz, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Science and Technology, Universidad of Turabo, Puerto Rico, saw a rapid increase in the number of K-12 students with asthma and wanted to help the schools respond. Knowing the solution had to be community-based in order for it to succeed, she engaged a diverse group of school district and community representatives, parents, undergraduate and graduate students to implement a series of school-based interventions.  

      Facilitator:

      • Tracey Mitchell, RRT, AE-C, U.S. EPA, Indoor Environments Division, is a registered respiratory therapist and certified asthma educator. She has led the patient and professional education efforts of EPA’s asthma program for 16 years. Tracey brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the asthma in schools issue.
