The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease, through research, education and advocacy. The work of the American Lung Association is focused on four strategic imperatives: to defeat lung cancer; to improve the air we breathe; to reduce the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families; and to eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases.

The PAN Foundation partners with the American Lung Association to provide education and support services to patients living with asthma, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, non-small cell lung cancer and pulmonary hypertension.
