The main goal of this project is to provide technical assistance to share expertise through several different forums, (environmental management of asthma training session, promotor workshops, and children’s health symposium) with doctors, nurses, promotores de salud, health professionals, outreach workers and practitioners, on specific environmental health topics. Members of the Western States Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit (PEHSU) of the University of California-San Francisco will conduct three events, an environmental management of asthma training session, promotor workshops, and a children’s environmental health symposium. With these events, more than 150 healthcare providers will be trained with specialized information.
