I, Rena Mamoun, Wear Turquoise - For My Loved One. Will You Join Me?
I am the President of the first American Lung Association Collegiate Council on my campus at California State University, Fullerton. As an undergraduate student I am continuing my education in Public Health while minoring in Public Policy and Public Administration. Aside from my education, I have had experience surrounding the issues of Lung health, Smoking, Nicotine products, air pollution, and policy work surrounding multiple cities.
I experience great student interaction and involvement on her campus as I carry the presidency position in four other organizations on my campus. With my involvement I have witnessed how youth and young adults are impacted by nicotine products such as cigarettes and electronic devices. This has driven me to get involved with multiple organizations that are motivated to create change for the better.
I have carried out experience in implementing and advocating for the smoke free policy on my campus. I have also participated as a member in the L.A. Families fighting Flavored Tobacco.
At this time, I've refocused my efforts from Advocacy into COVID-19. Having personally seen the long-lasting effects that the disease can have on lung health, it is clear that the fight is still not over and that is why I am dedicated to helping in the American Lung Association's overcoming of COVID-19.
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.
