Mission Statement

When you join the American Lung Association 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

  • The American Lung Association will eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related lung disease.
  • The American Lung Association will improve the air we breathe so it will not cause or worsen lung disease.
  • The American Lung Association will reduce the burden of lung disease on patients and their families.

The American Lung Association has a dedicated board of directors and nationwide assembly, volunteers who donate their time to help the organization plan and achieve its goals, which are clearly identified in the Lung Association's five-year strategic plan.

From a governance and oversight perspective, the Lung Association's board and assembly convene regularly in order to monitor progress toward achieving these goals. A performance based management system enables the Lung Association 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.

Description

Welcome to the the American Lung Association of the Mid-Atlantic, serving the areas of Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

Our site contains information on asthma, tobacco, air quality, and other lung diseases. We are dedicated to providing you with the most up to date information available to help you as we move forward in our quest to fight lung disease and promote lung health.

We offer a number of programs that are designed to help people quit smoking, learn to live with and control their asthma, prevent children from smoking, and many other lung health problems. Contributions of time, money and event sponsorships to the ALAMA help those who suffer with lung disease through mission driven programs and activities.
