and CEO's Message
We continue to work daily to
bring you a web site with the best information about many aspects of lung
disease. I hope the resources on this site help improve the quality of
life for you and your loved ones living with lung disease, be it asthma,
emphysema, chronic bronchitis, tuberculosis, pneumonia or a host of other
We also believe that preventing lung disease is an important concern for
many people. You will find many resources on this site that can help you
make informed choices to protect your lungs, whether it is to empower
you to refuse a cigarette, quit smoking, improve the air quality in and
around your home or to protect your lungs during a smog alert.
Many others will be interested in lung health research and its significance
in their life. This is why The Lung Association supports medical research
and research programs at the five leading medical schools in Ontario.
This is truly an exciting time for The Lung Association and lung health

more importantly, some unique opportunities. Opportunities that will allow
us to better reach Ontarians with lung disease.
