The Hudson Valley Asthma Coalition of the American Lung Association in New York works with health care centers, schools, and other community institutions to ensure that children with asthma and their families are able to live healthy, active lives.

The Hudson Valley Asthma Coalition (HVAC) is one of nine coalitions throughout New York State (NYS) that receive funding from the NYS Department of Health to improve the managment and treatment of childhood asthma in health care settings.  HVAC covers four counties: Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan, and Westchester.  HVAC partners with health care centers, schools, and other community organizations to improve the health of children with asthma.  HVAC's primary focus is to make sustainable changes in health care systems that meet the standard of asthma care for children according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma.
