KINGSBROOK HOSTS ASTHMA SCREENING WEEK NOV. 25-27TH
Best Health School provides free education and early detection options for Central Brooklyn
residents all year round. On Nov. 25-27th free asthma screenings will
be held for the entire week, from 11:00-2:00pm in the Pulmonary Lab, DMRI
3rd floor on our main campus at
585 Schenectady Avenue between Winthrop Street & Rutland Road.
Asthma impacts a large part of the Central Brooklyn community and needs
a level of treatment and understanding that is critical for living a normal
healthy life. The American lung Association describes, asthma as a lifelong
disease that causes wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and coughing.
It can limit a person's quality of life. It is one of this country's
most common and costly diseases.
" The mission of the
Best Health School is to provide better access to early detection efforts such as this to
help promote healthier lifesyles,". says Enid Dillard, Director of
Marketing & Public Affairs. “As such, the Best Health School's
education programs provide access to services that are specifically designed
for the uninsured of our community, and plays a large part of our effort
to improve access to quality care.”
