In a unique collaboration between the American Lung Association of Los Angeles County, the Southern California Environmental Health Sciences Center, the Los Angeles Environmental Affairs Department, and Mothers of East L.A.-Saint Isabel, children with asthma and their families will receive asthma education through their school and at home.

Funded by the EPA as part of the Child Health Champion Project, children in East Los Angeles who complete the Open Airways For Schools course or the Huff and Puff pre-school asthma education curriculum will receive a free home consultation by indoor air quality and asthma experts. This consultation is designed to help families discover what triggers their children's asthma, and how to avoid it, using low cost to no-cost measures.

KICK Asthma-L.A. is one of only ten children's health projects funded by the EPA nationwide. Hillary Clinton kicked off this national initiative in a press conference earlier this summer and the program launches in Los Angeles during the fall with an official Los Angeles kick off on December 11, World Asthma Day.
