Welcome to Haitian American Nurses Association of Hudson Valley, New York

Haitian American Nurses Association (HANA) of Hudson Valley, New York. is a 501 (c) 3, non-profit nursing organization. HANA of Hudson Valley, New York, was founded in 2008 by Registered Nurse, Berthilde Dufrene,  following a disastrous flood that took place in the northwestern region of Haiti. The need to create a nursing organization was necessary not only  to reach out to the global community,  but to also address the health and socioeconomic concerns in the immediate Rockland community.  Since then, our members have participated in several missions around the world.

HANA of Hudson Valley, New York, was preceded by HANA of Florida which was established in 1984 in South Florida. Currently, HANA has  several chapters nationwide in the states of Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Illinois, New Jersey and New York.
