American Lung Association in Oregon
The American Lung Association in Oregon (ALAO) is the oldest, nationwide, non-profit, voluntary public health organization in Oregon. A voluntary Leadership Council governs us and we are the only community health agency dedicated solely to fighting lung disease and promoting lung health in Oregon. Our programs focus on the areas of asthma, clean air, tobacco prevention, and lung disease.
The non-profit organization is governed by elected, volunteer members, who meet quarterly and function in between meetings through various committees. These volunteers help to guide the organization, the association's professional staff and hundreds of Oregonians statewide in carrying out the ALAO mission.
