What We Do
At the Lung Association, our goals are big—defeat lung cancer, create a tobacco-free future, champion clean air for all, and improve the quality of life for those living with lung disease.
For more than 115 years, Americans have trusted us to protect their lungs, whether it's researching treatments and cures for lung diseases, keeping kids off tobacco, including e-cigarettes, or advocating for laws that protect the air we all breathe.
Because when you can't breathe, nothing else matters®.

Our Vision: A world free of lung disease.
Our Strategic Imperatives:
- Defeat lung cancer.
- Champion clean air for all.
