The American Lung Association in Nebraska offers a variety of programs for people whose lives have been touched by lung disease.

We offer educational programs for those who are living with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as prevention programs designed to raise awareness about risk factors that lead to lung disease, such as smoking and air pollution.

Whether you or someone you know is living with lung disease, if you are an employer who wants to provide a wellness program for your employees, or a professional who is interested in becoming a facilitator for any of our programs, we are here to help you with your needs.
