You may not think about the importance of your lung health until you experience a breathing problem. Your lungs provide oxygen and keep every other organ functioning by removing carbon dioxide from your body. Genetics, disease, and the environment can affect the health of your lungs and cause respiratory problems. When your lung health is affected, it impacts the quality of everyday life and can prematurely shorten your lifespan.
Respiratory Health Association has been dedicated to community lung health since 1906, offering programs and services for patients, caregivers and medical professionals that address our community’s lung health needs. Learn how to keep your lungs healthy as well as how you can be part of RHA’s efforts to prevent lung disease, promote clean air and help people live better through education, research, and policy change.
