American Lung Association
The American Lung Association recognizes that influencing public policy—through legislation and regulation—at all levels of government is key to achieving its mission: To save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
The American Lung Association policy and advocacy program seeks to change government, corporate and community policies to help translate its mission into reality. The Public Policy Agenda for the 117th Congress identifies major legislative and regulatory issues on which the American Lung Association will take a leadership role to defend and advance the interests of public health. These represent opportunities for the American Lung Association to heighten public awareness, stimulate dialogue and change public policy on issues critical to its mission.
