I Wear Turquoise (IWT) is an American Lung Association LUNG FORCE campaign, engaging leaders throughout Southern California.

In American Lung Association’s pursuit to ensure lung health for all, its research funding is hard at work during this outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). A recent discovery is showing great promise for a potential vaccine. Our lung helpline and website continue to be trusted sources of information and support. Reliable resources, including guidance on how to protect yourself and your family from becoming infected, are available during this unprecedented health threat. It is important that this crucial work continue. We invite you to be a part of the solution and help prevent against future pandemics TODAY.

The American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE launched five years ago, uniting women and their loved ones to stand together and fight lung cancer. Today we invite everyone to join the commitment to lung health and for clean, healthy and livable communities for all. Leaders from throughout Southern California have joined us to become IWT Ambassadors to lead the charge toward a cleaner, healthier future.
