About The Lung Association, Alberta & NWT
The Lung Association of Alberta & NWT began in 1939 as the Alberta Tuberculosis Association. Our goal was to educate the public about TB, conduct mass chest x-rays and provide a rehabilitation service for TB sanitarium patients. Over the years, The Lung Association has broadened its scope to encompass all aspects of lung health. Current areas of focus include issues related to asthma and allergies, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and lung cancer, flu and infectious diseases, environmental issues, smoking prevention and cessation, sleep apnea, and continued work in the area of TB.
Through your assistance The Lung Association of Alberta/NWT helps improve the quality of life for those suffering with lung disease through education, advocacy and program support.
