The Partners Asthma Center (PAC) is comprised of a team of allergists and pulmonologists at the Brigham and Women’s, Massachusetts General, Faulkner, Newton-Wellesley Hospitals, and the North Shore Medical Center, who provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for adults and children with asthma and related diseases.
