Chamber Welcomes American Lung Association
As the Trusted Champion in Lung Health for over 115 years, the American Lung Association serves over 36 million people battling lung disease. The Lung Association’s mission is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease, with its top three focus areas of Education, Advocacy, and much needed Research.
We’ve identified five strategic imperatives that guide everything we do:
- Covid-19 Action Initiative – With Covid-19 being a respiratory virus, those that we serve are most at risk. This $25M initiative is specifically geared to help end Covid-19 and defend against future respiratory virus pandemics. Lung.org/cv19-action.
- To defeat lung cancer
- To improve the air we breathe
- To reduce the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families.
- To eliminate tobacco use and tobacco related diseases, such as teen vaping, the American Lung Association Helpline, Tobacco Quitline, and much more.
