Improving Life, One Step at a Time
For over a century the American Lung Association (ALA) has pioneered important advancements in the fight against lung disease. Leading the charge for lung health, the ALA has worked to conquer tuberculosis, make public places smoke-fee and establish a nationwide network of Asthma Clinical Research centers. Our work is far from finished. Twenty-one million Americans smoke, twenty million people-half of them children-live with asthma and more than half the U.S. population breathes bad air. Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer. This is why we are asking you to take steps against lung disease. Together, we can improve life, one step at a time.
