ABOUT US

The Asthma Coalition of Long Island

 

The Asthma Coalition of Long Island is funded by a grant from the New York State Department of Health to the American Lung Association.  As one of five Asthma Control Program regional contractors, our directive is to reduce the burden of asthma for those most affected by this chronic disease. 

 

This initiative aims to increase the quality of life among individuals living with asthma and to decrease the number of asthma-related hospitalizations, emergency department visits, urgent care visits and school or work days lost.
