The mission of the American Lung Association® in Alaka, Idaho and Washington is to assure lung health for the people of Alaska, Idaho, and Washington states through research, education, community service and advocacy.
The American Lung Association® was founded in 1904 as part of the first nationwide corps of volunteers organized to combat a single disease: tuberculosis. Today we're working to make the world a better place to breathe.
Our goals include reducing tobacco use, especially among young people; preventing and controlling air pollution; and providing education and funding research to make life more comfortable for people with asthma or other lung disease.
The Lung Association is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that relies on donations of time, talent, and treasure from individuals like you. There are a number of ways you can join the fight against lung disease.
