Founded in 1916 to fight tuberculosis, the American Lung Association in Florida is the lead organization in the state working to improve lung health and prevent lung disease. Lung disease death rates continue to increase while other leading causes of death have declined. The American Lung Association in Florida funds vital research on lung disease cures, provides education and support programs to both adults and children and advocates for stronger air laws and tobacco prevention and education at the capital.

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