BREATHE California of Los Angeles County is dedicated to providing communities in Los Angeles County with the resources needed to promote clean air initiatives. Through its continued commitment to research, education and advocacy, BREATHE California of Los Angeles County works with local communities, elected leaders, business leaders and the health education community to increase awareness of the causes and treatments for lung-related diseases and breathing-related conditions.
BREATHE LA's programs educate and promote healthy lungs and better breathing. On a multi-cultural, multi-disciplined basis, we are working to help improve the lives of those with lung disease and breathing-related conditions. We are working with organizations to combat asthma and are partners in the battle for smoke-free environments and for overall cleaner air. We do this through specific programs and initiatives tailored to individual communities as well as various ages and cultural backgrounds.
First formed in 1903 as the Los Angeles Society for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis, the organization served the city's growing population of more than 300,000. For more than 30 years, the organization committed itself to increasing public awareness about the tuberculosis epidemic and other lung-related diseases--including asthma, bronchitis and emphysema--and working towards eradication.
