Asthma-Friendly School Recognition

To support the academic performance and improve the health status of students with asthma in Florida, FAC established the Asthma-Friendly Schools Recognition with the support of local, state and academic partners.

With the goal of improving student heath, attendance, and academic achievement, the Florida Asthma Coalition established a voluntary recognition opportunity to acknowledge schools with exceptional asthma management programs. The Florida Asthma Coalition recognized the long-term impact of academic success and the link between health and academics. Academic success is a key indicator for the overall well-being of students and a primary predictor and determinant of adult health outcomes.

The 2016-2017 Asthma-Friendly School Award Application is due May 19, 2017. For assistance during the application process, please refer to our Asthma-Friendly School Mentor Map. For more information. please complete an Interest Form and submit it to the mentor assigned to your area.

We are excited to announce the following schools who have achieved recognition from the Florida Asthma Coalition.
