ALA Report on Lung Disease in Diverse Communities

The American Lung Association has released a report entitled, State of Lung Disease in Diverse Communities: 2007. This report serves as a resource to those who have been affected by asthma, lung cancer, SIDS, RSV, and other lung diseases and provides members of these communities with health information that can be used in the fight against lung disease and risk factors that cause or contribute to lung disease. It provides statistics, background material and ongoing research about lung health issues such as asthma, smoking and clean air as they relate to racially and ethnically diverse communities.
