Arkansas Respiratory Health Association Charity Profile
The Arkansas Respiratory Health Association works to prevent lung disease and support those living with lung disease through research, education, and advocacy.
We provide programs that reach into every corner of the state. Tobacco and asthma education in public and private schools, support groups for those living with lung disease and their families, and offering free medical advice are our priorities. We actively support researchers who are looking for cures and better treatments for lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, and lung cancer.
The Arkansas Respiratory Health Association is a volunteer organization with a full time staff located in Little Rock. We are working to promote lung health by educating children about the dangers of tobacco, helping adults quit smoking, and providing a better quality of life for both children and adults living with lung disease.
