Does your child have asthma? You may not be aware that the majority of asthma triggers may be in or around your home, according to an assistant professor at the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health.
The Texas A&M Health Science Center (HSC) School of Rural Public Health McAllen Campus and the McAllen Asthma Coalition (MAC) recently partnered with the Texas A&M University Center for Housing and Urban Development colonias program (CHUD) to offer asthma certified continuing education training for South Texas community health workers (promotores).
A new organization, the McAllen Asthma Coalition (MAC), is pioneering a unique education program in elementary schools to help children learn how to manage their asthma.
