LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD:  

“Through their dedication to progressive patient care, education, and treatment, the staff of the Asthma and Allergy Center exemplifies the qualities   . . . . . . . “

West Virginia Asthma Coalition is the largest such coalition in West Virginia. Its membership includes physicians, respiratory therapists, health educators, data and outreach specialists, and others whose lives are impacted by Asthma. Each year before its Annual Conference the members are asked to nominate an individual or group that has shown long-term, supreme dedication to improving the lives of West Virginians with Asthma. For the year 2012, the members nominated  Asthma and Allergy Center for this honor and presented us with this Lifetime Achievement Award. Cynthia Keely-Wilson, Manager, Asthma Education and Prevention Program presented the award as follows:

“It gives me great pride to be here today, with the leaders in Asthma Education and Prevention in WV. It is an honor that I have been given an opportunity to present this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

This year’s award recipient has helped address the needs of West Virginians with Asthma for over 30 years. The dedication to improving patients’ quality of life is, like the Visa commercial says, priceless.

It gives me great pleasure to announce the Winner of the 2012 Lifetime achievement award: The Asthma and Allergy Center!

Through their dedication to progressive patient care, education, and treatment, the staff of the Asthma and Allergy Center exemplifies the qualities that make up the criteria for the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Dr. Kumar, please accept this award from the WVAC in tremendous gratitude for the work that you all do every day to improve the lives of those with Asthma.”
