State and Community

At the state and local levels, the American Lung Association advocates for policies that will reduce the incidence of lung cancer by decreasing the number of smokers. We fight for comprehensive smokefree indoor air laws and ordinances, higher cigarette taxes, and fully funded tobacco prevention and cessation programs. 

Early detection of lung cancer can increase survival rates. Call the Lung Helpline at 1-800-LUNGUSA or talk to your doctor about lung cancer screening.
