Welcome to Respiratory Health Association
Join RHA for a trip to Springfield on Thursday, April 6, 2017. We'll be visiting the Illinois Capitol to educate our decision-makers on the importance of healthy lungs, tobacco control, clean air, and other concerns. Meet your senators or representatives to share how lung disease has impacted your life and how they can make a difference through important legislation. Register before March 30!
The results are in! The city’s most iconic stair climb welcomed 3,141 individuals to its 20th anniversary on Sunday, February 26, 2017. To date, this year's participants have raised $1,000,000 to support the local fight against lung disease. Thank you and congratulations to all our climbers!
