About Us

The American Lung Association of the Mountain Pacific saves lives and improves health through research, education and advocacy.  We fight to reduce smoking, keep the air we breathe clean, prevent and treat lung diseases such as asthma, COPD and lung cancer.  Our seven-state region includes Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii.

The American Lung Association® was founded in 1904 as part of the first nationwide corps of volunteers organized to combat a single disease: tuberculosis. Today we're working to make the world a better place to breathe.

Our goals include reducing tobacco use, especially among young people; preventing and controlling air pollution; and providing education and funding research to make life more comfortable for people with asthma or other lung disease.

The Lung Association is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that relies on donations of time, talent, and treasure from individuals like you. There are a number of ways you can join the fight against lung disease.
