At the American Lung Association, our mission is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
For nearly 120 years, we have been helping families, neighbors and friends in communities nationwide.
We champion clean air for all.
We improve the quality of life for people who face lung disease, including COVID-19.
We are creating a tobacco-free future.
We are working to defeat lung cancer.
We believe everyone should be able to breathe freely.
And we can’t do it alone.
Join us to make a difference.
We need you.
When you can’t breathe, nothing else matters.
The American Lung Association is governed by a dedicated and diverse volunteer Board of Directors, and managed by an experienced team of staff who guide its lifesaving mission daily.
