The American Lung Association of Minnesota (ALAMN) works to meet the challenges to lung health that have emerged over the years. When ALAMN was founded in 1903, tuberculosis was the great scourge of our state. When cigarette smoking came into fashion, the fight against lung disease expanded its focus to include the evils of tobacco. ALAMN has been a major force in educating Minnesotans about the dangers of smoking and providing programs to help those who smoke to quit. For the 40,000 Minnesotans who suffer from advanced lung disease, whose families stand by helplessly as they struggle for breath, the American Lung Association provides support groups and caring staff to help them cope. ALAMN has been expanding their programs to include asthma, allergies and pollution.
