SHARP Program

Staying Healthy—Asthma Responsible & Prepared™ also known as SHARP is an academic asthma health education and counseling self-management program delivered in schools during instructional time by trained certified elementary school teachers.

SHARP is an innovative, fun, and engaging program for students with asthma, enrolled in grades 4 through 7, and members of their social network. The program was designed to help students with asthma accept responsibility for managing their condition. Input, from students and their parents, was used by certified asthma educators and elementary school teachers to develop the program.
