About this organization








The American Lung Association's mission is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.


The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research. We were founded 120 years ago by a group of volunteers dedicated to ending the lung health threat at the time: tuberculosis. With TB largely controlled in the United States, we have extended that mission to other respiratory diseases. And thanks to our donors, volunteers, program and event participants, and staff, we are America's trusted source for lung health education, lung disease research, support, programs, services and advocacy.
