ACMT Environmental Medicine Modules: Module 3-Pediatric Asthma


This is the third module in ACMT's Environmental Medicine Modules, and consists of a pretest, a 67 minute presentation titled "Pediatric asthma and environmental exposures," a posttest, and a survey. The presentation provides an overview of pediatric asthma, including environmental risk factors, diagnosis and treatment, and public health perspectives. This is one of a series of ACMT Environmental Health Learning Modules that can be used individually to supplement an existing course or combined to create a stand?alone course for the education of undergraduate, graduate and/or professional learners. Funding for this series of web-based learning modules was made possible (in part) by the cooperative agreement award number 1U61TS000117-05 from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR).
