FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Do you cough a lot? Get out of breath walking up a flight of stairs? Do you suffer from a lot of chest colds? Do you smoke or have you ever smoked? If so, you may have lung disease.
Lung disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States affecting more than 400,000 Americans. It is a preventable and treatable if diagnosed early. St. Mary’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation invites you to a free lung function screening on March 15, 2011 from 8am to noon. The screening will be held at the St. Mary’s Medical Office Building on 15 Gracelawn Road in Auburn.
The screening will take about 20 minutes. When complete, we’ll go over the results with you, discuss risk factors, and suggest ways to improve your lung function. Though we encourage you to make an appointment, we will accept walk-ins on a first-come, first-served basis. Please call 753-3259 today to reserve your spot.
At St. Mary’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation, it is our mission to enhance the quality of our patients’ lives by improving their ability to breathe. We do this through education, reconditioning exercise, nutritional counseling, and social and emotional support.
