New Jersey Health Ed

In May 2017, Pediatric/Adult Asthma Coalition of New Jersey (PACNJ) and the American Lung Association in New Jersey partnered with Cooper Health System to participate in a health fair for 60 children from Veterans Memorial Family School in Camden New Jersey. The students went to various stations to learn about lung health topics. The American Lung Association facilitated an interactive session to teach the children about asthma triggers and lung health. They made their own mini-lung models out of balloons, water bottles, straws, and play dough. The kids also learned about the dangers of tobacco use and secondhand smoke through the use of pig lungs, model building, and a mini presentation. It was a fun filled educational day for all. The event was made possible in collaboration with Cooper Medical School of Rowan University staff, Respiratory Therapists, teachers, nurses, and the Lung Association. Each child went home with various American Lung Association health literature.
