Capacity Building through Community Partnerships and Community Education



An essential part of the Indoor Air Quality Program is partnering within the SLV communities with thanks to our major collaborator, Denver- based National Jewish Health.

The guidance of National Jewish's Dr. Lisa Cicutto helped SLVEC to connect with Adams State University Nursing Program, SLV Public Schools and countywide Public Health organizations.

Over the life of this program connections and Indoor Air Quality programs were initiated with Adams State University; the school systems in the SLV; the Public Health systems of Saguache, Alamosa and Rio Grande counties; Rocky Mountain Prevention Research Center; Adelante; and LaLlave.

SLVEC also coordinated a visit and discussion with the National Brownfields Coordinator and Center for Disease Control, ASTDR, which attracted attendence from 20 SLV agencies. Illegal dumping and solid waste disposal issues were addressed.

These discussions led to eventual actions that are now being tackled by the SLVEC Solid Waste Management Program.

IAQ materials and hands-on discussions were also provided to the community through our participation in public outreach by presenting booths at the many local health fairs. These fairs offered opportunities for the distribution of dust masks and bandanas, dissemination of green cleaning solutions, home evaluation assessments and individual consultations.
