Education technology provider collaboration turns focus to building knowledge of environmental triggers, treatment and more for asthma
WOODBURY, N.Y., May 10, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Learn360Awareness, an initiative from Learn360 designed to build awareness of specific topics and link supporting educational content to those topics, in partnership with Health Nuts Media, today announces the launch of its third initiative focusing on asthma.
“Nearly 1 in 10 school-aged children suffer from Asthma, making it the leading cause of absenteeism in the U.S. representing nearly 14 million missed school days annually,” said Chris Sanborn, president of Learn360. “The effects of this disease can be dramatically minimized with easy-to-adopt classroom environmental control practices. We saw an opportunity to bring attention to the various ways we can minimize the effects that our daily environment has on students with asthma. The more informed our educators and students become on this common medical issue, the more likely we will be able to reduce the physical and academic effect that it has on our children.”
Through an array of content surrounding the environmental triggers, treatment and other aspects of asthma, www.Learn360Asthma.com is a one-stop shop for educators to build awareness on the disease.
“Both personally and through my work with Health Nuts Media, I’ve long promoted the use of a variety of technologies to advance healthcare and know the benefits technology can bring to the table,” said Dr. Gregg Alexander, chief medical officer for Health Nuts Media. “Through the Learn360 Awareness program, we can utilize technology and online resources in another way: to spread the word on how to best handle asthma issues both in and outside of school.”
The Awareness program features relevant resources and additional facts on each highlighted issue from top producers and partners of Learn360. Key contributors to Learn360 Awareness Asthma include Health Nuts Media and Sunburst Visual Media.
