New year, new ways to make a difference. This year, throw away the New Year’s resolutions and step up to make an impact in your Chicago community. Join Respiratory Health Association’s (RHA) Associates Board to have a direct impact on the lives of people living with lung disease. With your help, we will create a future where everyone can breathe clean air.
RHA’s Associates Board is a group of young professionals, 25-40, dedicated to volunteering their time, talents, and energy to building a future with healthy lungs and clean air for all. Members serve as advocates for RHA and our work addressing asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, tobacco control, and air quality.
Take it from some of our current Associate Board members, who shared what working with RHA means to them.
“RHA is a cause near and dear to my heart (and lungs). I had several asthma attacks growing up and know many who suffer or are suffering from lung cancer.”
– Colin McElligott
“I joined RHA’s Associates Board because I am passionate about climate change, clean air, and giving the next generation more equitable opportunities. Growing up in poor neighborhoods in NJ, I thought it was normal for most kids to have asthma. The work RHA does to change policies and educate citizens will help folks like me and communities like the one I’m from.”
– Dwayne Pickett
