This collection contains documents collected and created by the American Lung Association of Alameda County in 1995 and 1996
as a contractor with the Alameda County Tobacco Control Project which is a Local Lead Agency as designated by the California
State Legislature through the California Department of Health, Tobacco Control Section.
The American Lung Association of Alameda County (aka American Lung Association of the East Bay) is a local affiliate of the
American Lung Association. Founded in 1903, the local chapter provides a wide variety of lung health services in the areas
of tobacco, asthma, environmental health/clean air, lung disease and tuberculosis. Tobacco control programs include information
and referral, a loan library, smoking cessation clinics, tobacco prevention education, policy and media advocacy, and implementation
of statewide and local tobacco control policies. These efforts implement Proposition 99, the California referendum passed
in 1988, raising cigarette taxes and supporting tobacco education programs.
