The American Lung Association produces a variety of reports which highlight important issues related to our goals of promoting clean air and healthy lungs.  We also collaborate with partners on reports regarding various public health issues.

Lung Health Disparities

These in depth reports not only take a closer look at some of the disparities that now affect the lung health of diverse groups, but offer insight into ways we can improve the lung health of everyone.
