LAUSD Students Use Video Skills to Clear the Air

In honor of Asthma Awareness Month in May, some creative students from Robert F. Kennedy New Open World (NOW) Academy in L.A. have produced a set of videos they hope will help the whole LA Unified school district breathe a little easier.

LAUSD Nursing Services and the Office of Environmental Health and Safety collaborated with media students to put together PSAs to help their peers avoid common asthma and allergy triggers. The comical PSAs, with names like “Don’t Mess with My Fresh Air!” will educate students and teachers on triggers such as indoor air pollution from blocked vents and exposure to fragrances found in common cleaning products, air fresheners and perfumes. The students’ PSAs contributed to the school winning the Distinguished Achievement Air Health Award from California Breathing, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of Californians with asthma.
