Advocacy

Protecting clean air and ensuring proper lung health care

Whether it is reducing toxic emissions into the air, making Illinois Smoke-Free, creating the State Plan for COPD or improving access to healthcare, Respiratory Health Association is shaping policies to protect lung health in our communities. Staff and volunteers join together to monitor legislation from metropolitan Chicago all the way to Washington, D.C. The aim: to support policies that protect the air we breathe and improve the lives of people affected by lung disease by advocating for increased prevention activities, research and improved access to quality care.

Join us on our next trip to visit legislators! Or sign up for E-Advocacy to learn how you can help improve the lung health of your community by sending emails and making phone calls to influence your elected leaders!
