Creating asthma friendly schools
Ryan’s Law is a piece of lifesaving Ontario legislation that came into force in May 2015. It requires all school boards in the province to develop and maintain asthma policies and procedures that help protect students who have asthma. Schools are also required to allow students with asthma to carry their emergency inhalers, with permission from a parent or guardian.
The Lung Health Foundation is committed to helping parents, teachers and school boards adjust to this new era of asthma-friendly schools!
