Current Initiatives

ASTHMA PILOT PROGRAM
SB322 is 
legislation that enables schools to address emergent situations for students with asthma, with the goal of reducing the number of students with asthma who must be dismissed from school.  
In the fall of 2017,  the NH Asthma Control Program, in collaboration with the NH School Nurses Association, supported pilot implementation of the emergency inhaler legislation in 28 schools in 10 school districts.  The results of the first year were so promising that NHSNA has decided to fund the Pilot Project to expand into more schools.  READ full report
