About the Program
The American Lung Association in Colorado’s ONE Step program provides Early Childhood Educators and organizations serving low income parents with training and resources on Asthma and Secondhand Smoke (SHS). Using health focused messaging about removing asthma triggers and environmental tobacco (including e-cigarette) smoke from their homes, this program will equip ECEs with the knowledge and confidence to educate parents about the dangers of Secondhand Smoke and how protecting their child’s health can be achieved in ONE Step.


ONE Step training will be available in person and online!

ONE Step training educates Early Childhood Educators (ECE) and organizations serving low income parents about the basics of asthma management, asthma triggers and ways to reduce asthma triggers, and the harms and common misconceptions of environmental aerosols from electronic smoking devices, tobacco, and marijuana smoke. Trainees will also learn how to communicate with parents in a non-threatening, health-focused way about how they can protect their children from secondhand smoke.

  • Learn how to strengthen tobacco policies in your center/home or school
  • Learn how to encourage “no smoking” policies in air shared by children at any time in any place
