Asthma advocate

Want to be an Asthma Advocate?

I always perk up when I hear about something that has to do with asthma. Do you want to help out in your kid's school and teach people about asthma? It's actually fun!

The Utah Department of Health's Asthma Advocate program offers a chance to get involved in your community. Asthma Advocates come up with ideas and take them into local schools. You are encouraged to be as creative as you would like, based on what interests you. You can let the schools and students know about resources that are available about asthma. You get to work it around your own schedule, which is great for all of us busy multi taskers.

The Utah Department of Health will provide a free 3 hour training, and even provide lunch.

If you want more information, contact Kelli Baxter at (801) 538-6595 or email her at She also has a blog at

There's all sorts of fun things out there, I even found some fun video games that teach about asthma that I'll blog about later.

If should blog on Friday for Flashback Friday, but if not - then have a Merry Christmas!


  1. Informative!! I have heard of a few things one being a product called respitrol. You can also reduce your asthma attacks by reducing the triggers of asthma in your house.

  2. Yes, we have tried just about every product on the market over the last years! There are several entries about what I have done to reduce triggers in our home, everything from removing carpet to cleaning tips, to having the vents cleaned and sanitized. I am on the quest to make our house a safe haven!
