The American Lung Association (ALA) of California and its 15 local associations work to prevent lung disease and promote lung health. The American Lung Association of California is a chapter of the American Lung Association (ALA), founded in 1904. The ALA is the greatest single resource for information and education about asthma. We have assumed a leading role in the fight against tobacco, helping smokers to quit, encouraging children not to start smoking, and protecting nonsmokers from secondhand smoke. We are constantly fighting for improved government standards for air quality, so everyone can breathe easier. The ALA of California has funded research since 1958. This year, we funded 21 projects for nearly $500,000.
