The Leadership Forum for Healthy Students and Healthy Schools is an activity of AASA’s cooperative agreement with the CDC to build the capacity of school leaders to work on asthma issues. To that end, and in close partnership with the National School Boards Association, we convened a five-state partnership to bring together superintendents, school board members, and state health, education, and asthma leaders. These videos are one result from the partnership in Wisconsin.

Experts also recommend a firm mattress, removing toys and pillows from cribs, and keeping infants from getting too warm.
A new study found that using a fan to circulate air while a baby sleeps can help prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. "This seems to suggest that by improving room ventilation we can further reduce risk," said the study's author. "The baby's sleeping environment really matters," said study senior author Dr. De-Kun Li of the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, Calif.

One of the major concerns is that we do not have good records to prove that the lighters are causing an issue.
When filling out VFIRS, firefighters must be made aware that there is an area to designate on the form that a novelty lighter was used. It is deep in the report and not easy to locate but it is there. Please pass this along to your departments in case you do have an incident involving a novelty lighter.
Again, if you have had any fires involving novelty lighters, or know of any problems involving these lighters, please send me an email as soon as possible.

The goal of this bus trip is to expose as many people throughout the state as possible to PPA. We hope to do this by making many stops at very visible locations and inviting the media to help us inform people about PPA through newspaper and television. While the counselors on board the bus are a great resource for patients, there is no magic in the bus. Patients can access information and service using the PPA toll free number and/or website. We want to make sure people know both exist.
The second goal of the bus trip is to expose Virginians to all other healthcare resources in the community. We hope that the media will not only tell people about the bus but also of the programs and services those that we partner with provide to the community. We will encourage the media to share information about the programs and service or services that are offered at the location where the bus is parked.
If you are interested in partnering with PPA and serving as a host for the bus, please contact Nicole Pugar at (804) 225-5828 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
