To prevent lung disease and promote lung health. Founded in 1904, the American Lung Association sets the progressive standard in this country for the promotion of lung health. We have been a pioneer and innovator in the prevention of lung disease and the promotion of lung health, dating back to the battles against tuberculosis at the turn of the century to today's war on asthma, tobacco use, air pollution, COPD and other related lung health issues. The ALANE maintains its commitment to lung disease and remains responsive to the ever-changing needs of today's issues through the development of innovative public education, research, and advocacy programs.
