Breathe California has been working to reduce the impact of lung disease through prevention, education, advocacy and patient services for more than 100 years! When they started in 1904, TB was the big issue. Today, Breathe California works on a number of issues and diseases, including asthma, tobacco use, emphysema, lung cancer, air pollution and tuberculosis. Breathe California works in Sacramento to help shape policy and pass legislation supporting cleaner air and stronger restrictions on tobacco products.
Bike 4 Breath, Breathe California’s annual cycling fundraiser, is July 11th in Atherton. Alex Elliot is with Breathe California.
