The mission of the American Lung Association is to prevent lung disease and promote lung health.

The American Lung Association of Mississippi (ALAM) was founded in 1914 to provide services and programs for better lung health for all Mississippians. Originally organized as the Mississippi Tuberculosis Association, dealing strictly with tuberculosis treatment, education and patient services, the association has taken an expanded role to encompass all lung, pulmonary, respiratory diseases and conditions.
