Training and Capacity Building
The Asthma Regional Council has developed a Healthy Homes Training Program for communities. This training is geared for community-based organizations and other who are interested in learning more about the connections between health and housing, specific hazards and prevention approaches, and the importance of a coordinated approach to addressing multiple public health and housing issues.
The training was piloted in the Spring of 2009 in Springfield, Massachusetts and Bridgeport, Connecticut with an overwhelmingly positive response. The training was subsequently delivered in Worcester, MA in partnership with the Regional Environmental Council, and in Boston, MA in partnership with the Lead Action Collaborative.
If you are interested in having a Healthy Homes training in your community, please contact Stacey Chacker at [email protected] or 617-279-2240 ext 536.
