Be Smart and Breathe Easy Asthma Program
In 2018, AAFA New England conducted the “Be Smart and Breathe Easy Asthma Program” in three inner-city Boston schools. Original resource documents were created to help schools manage their students affected by this chronic condition. These resources, written in both English and Spanish, address both disease management and asthma environmental trigger remediation. It is our goal that these resource documents will extend our reach to help improve the quality of life for students with the diagnosis of asthma.
