About

The Health Promotion committee exists to help the American Lung Association in Florida-Central Florida satisfy the mission of the organization as a whole. The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research. For more than 100 years, the organization has led the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air, whether it's searching for cures to lung diseases, keeping kids off tobacco, or fighting for laws that protect the air we all breathe. Each member participates in the committee and provides expert insight, volunteer engagement, and assist in the following lung-health related areas:

  • Clean Air (with a special focus on the State of the Air Report)

  • Tobacco-Related Advocacy (State of Tobacco Report)

  • COPD (Better Breathers’ Clubs)

  • Community Outreach

  • Legislative Meetings (10 Counties)

  • Asthma (Asthma Basics, Asthma 101)

  • Lung Cancer

Activities may include assisting with community presentations, helping to make connections with those in healthcare to expand lung health programs, serving as an American Lung Association representative when speaking to elected officials, and more.
