American Lung Association of Metropolitan Chicago

Founded as the Chicago Tuberculosis Institute in 1906, today, the mission of the American Lung Association of Metropolitan Chicago (ALAMC) is to prevent lung disease and promote lung health through research, advocacy, and education. To that end, the ALAMC serves an estimated one million Cook County residents diagnosed with asthma, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, and other lung diseases through community-based interventions. More specifically, goals of the ALAMC include the following: advocate for cleaner air; reduce tobacco use and exposure to second hand smoke; reverse the asthma epidemic in Chicago; and improve treatments and cures for lung disease.
