Mission Statement

The mission of the CHEST Foundation is to champion lung health by supporting clinical research, community service, and patient education.

Description

The CHEST Foundation, the American College of Chest Physician’s charitable foundation, champions lung health by supporting clinical research, community service, and patient education. Through CHEST Foundation-supported programs, CHEST’s 20,000+ members engage in advancing the lung health of millions of patients in local communities around the world. The foundation provides support to nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations throughout the world where CHEST members volunteer their time and medical expertise to help those in need. Since 1998, the foundation has conferred over 200 awards totaling more than $2 million, divided between domestic and international programs. The foundation also engages CHEST members and local communities in a variety of lung health community outreach efforts. From providing screenings at foundation Lung Health Day events, to participating in local grassroot efforts like runs, walks, and tobacco cessation programs, we offer chest medicine professionals a way to give back and to contribute as champions for lung health.
