Maryland Lawyer Steve Nolan Advocates for Lung Health as National Board Chair of the American Lung Association
Date:2/3/2009

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- America's oldest voluntary health organization is led by an experienced Maryland trial lawyer, Stephen J. Nolan. Elected National Board Chair, after more than a decade of volunteer service to the organization, Mr. Nolan has successfully steered the American Lung Association to tackle key issues facing the health of our nation.

A major emphasis of his chairmanship has been to build on the American Lung Association's efforts to eliminate lung health disparities among minority populations. Mr. Nolan has also worked to challenge the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) weakening ozone standards, and he has represented the Lung Association at two world health conferences in Europe.

Most recently, Nolan joined Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and T. Boone Pickens at a press conference in New York City to announce the American Lung Association's support of the Pickens Plan, a comprehensive approach to America's energy needs that is designed to promote energy independence and make the air healthier to breathe. At the conference, Mayor Bloomberg expressed his appreciation for the Lung Association's work in not only supporting his PlaNYC sustainability initiative but also working on behalf of various smoke-free initiatives in the city.

"Steve has energized our staff and mobilized our volunteer base with his highly approachable, hands-on leadership style," said Charles D. Connor, President and CEO of the American Lung Association. "His commitment to diversity and putting an end to lung health disparities in minority communities is one of his greatest contributions to those we serve," added Mr. Connor.

Mr. Nolan was invited to join the Board of Directors of the American Lung Association of Maryland after earning a reputation as a trusted legal advocate for workers and their families in asbestos-related lung cancer and mesothelioma cases. There, he served a two year term before being elected to a national leadership position within the American Lung Association.

Mr. Nolan's service to the Lung Association in addition to his years of other community and pro bono work has been recognized by the Maryland Bar Foundation with its Legal Excellence Award for the Advancement of Public Service Responsibility. A past president of the Baltimore County Bar Association, Mr. Nolan previously received the Foundation's Legal Excellence Award for the Advancement of the Rights of the Disadvantaged.

"It is a privilege to work with such a dedicated team of volunteers and staff to fight for healthy air and better access to healthcare on behalf of the 34 million Americans living with lung disease," said Mr. Nolan.

When he is not working with the American Lung Association, Mr. Nolan is engaged in a civil trial practice based in Baltimore, MD: www.sjnolan.com.
