The school environment is host to many asthma triggers similar to those present in the home. Dust, pests, mold, and other pollutants can trigger a child's asthma.
Many schools are often ill-equipped to handle the asthma crisis, which affects between 10 and 30 percent of their students. Some schools lack a school nurse and teachers are often unfamiliar with the severity of the disease.
With A.C.T. (Asthma Control Training), a.i.r. nyc raises asthma awareness in schools and helps educators create better environments for asthmatic children.
