Welcome to Breathe California
Beginning in 1904, Breathe California has worked to reduce the impact of lung disease through prevention, education, advocacy and patient services.
Our five local offices continue to fight lung disease and protect lung health through grassroots work in our own communities. We offer a wide array of quality programs and services to combat critical lung health issues such as asthma, tobacco use, emphysema, lung cancer, air pollution and tuberculosis. We strive to reach all of the diverse populations unique to our state and to help all Californians breathe easier. To learn more, visit your local Breathe California office's website.
On a statewide level, we work in Sacramento to help shape policy and pass legislation supporting our vision of a healthier California where we can breathe cleaner air.
On a national level, we work together with our BREATHE AMERICA™ Alliance members to prevent lung disease, advance public health, and promote clean air through direct services, education, advocacy, and research. Learn more about the Breathe America Alliance members across the country here.
