Every day the American Lung Association and its supporters fight for healthy lungs and healthy children.
Nothing is more important to us than protecting young lungs, so we have proven programs and dedicated volunteers that work tirelessly to help families manage asthma, and help kids resist the pressure to start smoking.
Our fight for healthy air is especially important for children, whose developing lungs may suffer from air pollution.
We also work with school systems nationwide to help them implement comprehensive plans for asthma management that keep kids healthy, in school, and ready to learn.
We directly fund scientists all over the country who are studying asthma and other childhood lung health issues, and aggressively push for increased federal funding for research into prevention and treatments of lung diseases. And there's so much more...
No child should live in an unhealthy environment or in fear of an asthma attack.
Poor air quality hurts growing lungs; in fact, it may cause life-long harm. Learn about your community's air at www.stateoftheair.org.
