The American Lung Association of Arizona was established in 1912, initially to fight the number one cause of death among adults in the United States: tuberculosis (TB). The American Lung Association of New Mexico was formed in 1908 also as a society to assist people who had tuberculosis. Although the name and the focus has changed since a cure for TB was found, we have remained constant in working to prevent lung disease and promote lung health. Today, lung disease is the third leading cause of death in Arizona and New Mexico. The Associations are fighting this grim statistic by focusing on four key areas: asthma, air quality, tobacco control and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD.
