The American Association of School Administrators announces six web-based videos on asthma in schools. These videos were created by the Wisconsin team of the Leadership Forum for Healthy Students and Healthy Schools. The team created 6 short “rich media” presentations that are available online and free of charge at http://www.wasda.org/public/resources/Asthma.asp.
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.
