Asthma Education Videos
Goal:To improve asthma awareness in students' schools and communities and empower students to be their own health advocates.
These videos were created during CFAAR's START and SMART Asthma Programs. Through these programs, the students became the researchers and went out into the community to understand the factors that can positively and negatively impact their asthma. They then worked with our team to create these PSAs to share with their classmates and community to spread awareness and education.
Our team has also built a curriculum based on these programs that can be used in schools to help students learn about a variety of other health conditions. If you are interested in ordering this free SHMRT curriculum for your school, please email email@example.com.
