What is the ONE Step Training - Live Online?
The American Lung Association’s ONE Step program provides Early Childhood Educators (ECEs) and organizations serving low-income parents with training and resources on asthma, secondhand smoke (SHS), and electronic smoking devices (ESDs). This training uses health-focused messaging about removing SHS (tobacco and marijuana smoke), asthma triggers, and removing environmental tobacco (including e-cigarettes) from homes and places children go. Folks who complete this 2-hour virtual training, will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to connect with parents/caregivers about the dangers of SHS and how protecting child’s health starts with one simple step.
