Best Health School provides free education and early detection options for Central Brooklyn
residents all year round. In March, asthma will be a central focus. From
March 26-20th, free asthma screenings will be held for the entire week,
from 11:00-2:00pm in the Pulmonary Lab (DMRI 5th Floor) on our main campus at 585 Schectady 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
According to the Asthma & Allergy Association, asthma affects almost
25 million Americans. It is a chronic disease that causes your airways to become inflamed, making
it hard to breathe. There is no cure for asthma. The best way to manage
asthma is to avoid triggers, take medications to prevent symptoms and
prepare to treat asthma episodes if they occur.
No appointments are needed for screenings. For more information please
call Kinsgbrook's Community Information line at 718-6-4-5062.
