Kingsbrook Hosts Asthma Screening Week Aug. 27-31


Kingsbrook's Best Health School is gearing up for the Summer months with education and screenings events that speak to advancing the health and wellness of the community. On August 27-31, from 11:00-2:00pm, the respiratory department will host an asthma screening week, providing free screenings and education about asthma in the Pulmonary lab, located in the DMRI building 3rd floor. All screenings take place at Kingsbrook’s main campus, 585 Schenectady Avenue between Winthrop Street & Rutland Road.

Asthma rates in central Brooklyn are higher than Brooklyn overall and is growing at a steady rate. Each year, Kingsbrook provides several asthma screening efforts to help raise awareness in the community and to provide information on appropriate treatment options.
