About PEI Lung Association
The PEI Lung Association is a community-based, charitable organization committed to assisting Islanders to promote, improve, and participate in their lung health through education, advocacy and research.
The Lung Association works at the national, provincial and community levels to improve and promote lung health. We focus on chronic lung diseases such as asthma and COPD, infectious diseases - TB, flu, and pneumonia, and breathing disorders like sleep apnea.
We provide reliable and trusted information to both citizens and governments, and we advocate for improvements patients with lung disease.
Recognizing that many lung diseases can be prevented, we inform people about the health effects of air pollution, indoors and out. We help smokers who are trying to quit, and we provide educational materials to make sure fewer people take up smoking.
We encourage governments at every level to create laws and policies that promote clean air.
