The Minnesota Department of Health is pleased to announce the launch of a new, free, online training. The training was developed as part of an EPA grant and is titled, Reducing Environmental Triggers of Asthma in the Home, or RETA-Home. This training is designed for public health nurses (PHNs) and certified asthma educators (AE-Cs) and takes about 40 minutes to complete. It teaches about the triggers of asthma found in the home and suggests simple, realistic interventions that helps limit or eliminate exposure to these triggers.

The program also features a resource section that can be accessed after the training has been completed.

To view this training program, please go to: www.retahome.org
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
