Home > Who We Are > Our Team

Since Breathe California was founded in 1908, the leadership of our board members and staff has been a critical and instrumental part of promoting public health in our communities.  The health impacts that our organization has made over the last century have largely been due to the concerted efforts of these groups.

Our staff includes educators, advocates, activists, accountants and media experts.

Our board members’ diverse backgrounds include medicine, pharmaceuticals, law, marketing and finance.
