American Lung Association's
Open Airways Program
Open Airways is a free instructional program developed by the American Lung association for children who have been diagnosed with Asthma. The PTA, working together with the Nurses in the Elementary schools, offers this program to children with parental consent.
It is a great way to help empower our kids to understand and manage issues related to their own health and well being. The children receive information about various "triggers ", both environmental and seasonal, that may impact their health. This program is incorporated into a portion of the school day and is taught by a PTA volunteer who is also a Registered Nurse.
