Did you know that your home can be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air?  For individuals with asthma it is very important to understand that asthma triggers can be in our homes- mold, poor ventilation, pests, strong scents are just a few possible triggers.  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Lead Hazard Control and Healthy Homes developed a tool kit to help organizations promote throughout June 2016 National Healthy Homes Month!

Visit http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/documents/huddoc?id=NHHMToolKitFinal.pdf to download their tool kit

Also if you live in Delaware and have a child with Asthma, the American Lung Association in Delaware has a program to help you identify asthma triggers in your home!  This program is a free phone call with follow up.  Once it is completed you receive a $50 Walmart gift card! How register for this program?  Click on the “Programs” tab, look for Home Assessment Program and complete the form.  You can also email Nicole Goldsboro at ngoldsboro@lunginfo.org or 302-737-6414×516
