The ALA of Louisiana is your resource for information and data on lung diseases. Our focus is on education and prevention. Our primary program goals are asthma management, tobacco education and cessation, and public policy issues.
Our vision is of a world free of lung disease.
Our mission is to prevent lung disease and promote lung health through research, advocacy, education and prevention.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation funded by contributions from individuals, businesses, corporations and grants. We receive our support from the annual Christmas Seal Campaign, other direct mail opportunities, fee for service activities, memorials, and special events.
The ALA of Louisiana is the oldest voluntary health organization in Louisiana, founded in 1906. Formerly known as the Louisiana TB and Respiratory Disease Association, we are concerned with all lung diseases from asthma to pneumonia to tuberculosis.
As a volunteer driven, community based nonprofit, the Association is governed by a statewide Board of Directors of 25 people, all of whom are volunteers. Volunteers throughout all regions of Louisiana offer their time and talents to help coordinate and implement programs in local communities.
