Asthma Screen on Saturday
May 10, 2010
On Saturday, May 15, from 2:30 to 4:30 pm, the Library will host an asthma screening for all ages.
This screening is part of a nationwide asthma screening program supported by the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology to help community members identify breathing problems, to raise awareness of the seriousness of asthma, and to let the public know how allergists can help them find relief from their symptoms.
Dr. Eugenia Hahn
will provide flyers, questionnaires, and brochures about recognizing asthma symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. In addition, there is an opportunity for people to assess their lungs through a simple blowing test with a peak flow meter.
