About Us

As the oldest voluntary health organization in the United States, the American Lung Association's mission is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through Education, Advocacy and Research. 

With the generous support of the public, we are "Fighting for Air." When you join the American Lung Association in the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air, you help save lives today and keep America healthy tomorrow

As a charter member of the nationwide organization, the American Lung Association of the Midland States is committed to carrying out this mission in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. In communities throughout the Midland States region, the American Lung Association is working to improve life one breath at a time through education, advocacy and research.

The American Lung Association of the Midland States is funded by public donations, along with gifts and grants from corporations, foundations, government agencies and nongovernmental organizations.

From tuberculosis to asthma, from tobacco control to clean indoor and outdoor air, the lung health successes achieved during the American Lung Association's century of service have been gained only through the work of thousands of committed volunteers, dedicated staff and generous supporters.
