Kickin’ Asthma Program Scholarship - Ends Sept 30

The American Lung Association has a nationwide grant to provide the Kickin’ Asthma program facilitator training for FREE. Kickin’ Asthma is a school-based curriculum that educates and empowers children with asthma in grades 6-10 (tweens and teens) through a fun and interactive approach to asthma self-management. This program aims to help kids develop skills that enable them to improve asthma self-management techniques, increase asthma awareness among school personnel, and decrease emergency room visits. The program was recently updated, and the facilitator training is now online and accessible 24/7. The grant also covers a materials kit to help anyone implement the program effectively.

There are currently scholarships available for a limited time (ending 9/30/2021 and must start training before 9/27/21) to train and certify Kickin’ Asthma facilitators free of charge ($400 value). Please reach out directly to Valerie.Steinmetz@lung.org and Liz.Hall@lung.org if you are interested in participating, or if you have any questions.
