What is the American Lung Association Connection to the CIC?
The American Lung Association is saving lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease for more than 115 years. Together, with other partners like the CIC, we continue our work to champion lung health for all through research, education and advocacy. The American Lung Association has been leading the CIC and the initiatives tied to it for well over 15 years. Thanks to a grant from the CT Department of Public Health, the work in this space continues in Connecticut.
