The mission of the Greater Roanoke Valley Asthma and Air Quality Coalition is to improve air quality and respiratory health for the Greater Roanoke Valley through education and partnerships with other organizations with similar goals.

Formed in March 2000, our coalition is comprised of members ranging from Valley respiratory health professionals to interested individuals including people with asthma, pulmonologists, nurse practitioners, respiratory care practitioners, registered nurses, allergists, representatives of the Virginia Department of Health, Virginia Society of Respiratory Care, Ride Solutions, American Lung Association, and environmental groups.

Air quality affects all of us. Pollution can be found both indoors and outdoors. People with asthma and other lung disorders are especially affected by air pollution. We benefit from the experience of experts who help educate the public about asthma and the hazards that contribute to attacks, as well as experts specializing in environmental issues related to air quality.
