For more than 100 years, the American Lung Association has been America's leading organization working to prevent lung disease and promote lung health. Progress against lung disease is not keeping pace with other major causes of death. The American Lung Association funds vital research on the causes of and treatments for lung disease. It is also one of the most respected organizations in the education and information of the public about lung health.
IQAir North America is proud that the American Lung Association has selected IQAir as an educational partner to raise awareness on indoor air quality issues.
"IQAir is a natural partner that shares our commitment to protecting the public from polluted air indoors," said Charles D. Connor, President and CEO of the American Lung Association, "Air pollution indoors can often be two to five times more concentrated than outdoor air, which can have serious health effects, particularly in those with lung disease, like asthma."
"We are honored to partner with the American Lung Association. They are the world's most reputable organization committed to lung health," said Frank Hammes, President of IQAir. "We share a common vision of providing superior scientific information on creating healthier indoor environments."
This exclusive partnership will combine the American Lung Association's over 100 year commitment to preventing lung disease and promoting lung health with IQAir's over 40 year commitment to air cleaning excellence.
"The quality of the air we breathe indoors is critical to our health," said Frank Hammes. "This partnership allows us to bring the public the best possible information on the importance of clean indoor air and how to achieve a healthier indoor environment."
