Mission Statement

When you join the American Lung Association in Florida in the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air, you help save lives today and keep America healthy tomorrow.

Our Mission:To save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.

Mission Goals:

  • Eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related lung disease.
  • Improve the air we breathe so it will not cause or worsen lung disease.
  • Reduce the burden of lung disease on patients and their families.

The American Lung Association of the Southeast, Inc. (serving Florida, Georgia and South Carolina) has a dedicated board of directors and volunteers who donate their time to help the organization plan and achieve its goals, which are clearly identified in the American Lung Association of the Southeast, Inc.'s five-year strategic plan.

From a governance and oversight perspective, the Lung Association's board convenes regularly in order to monitor progress toward achieving these goals. A performance based management system enables the organization to track and report on progress toward not only meeting its longer-term goals but also shorter-term objectives related to fulfilling the mission of the organization.
