“Building Systems to Sustain Home-Based Asthma Services” is a new eLearning and technical assistance platform designed to equip staff in public health agencies, state asthma-control programs, state Medicaid agencies, and other housing and health organizations with information about how to build the systems, infrastructure and financing to put home-based asthma services in place in their own states, communities or regions. A collection of 10 free eLearning modules and technical assistance tools from a team of experts and partners led by the National Center for Healthy Housing, with funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, combine to maximize opportunities to launch and grow large-scale, evidence-based, sustainable asthma home visiting programs.
