Free asthma screening on Aug. 13

About one in 10 Missourians have asthma, a chronic condition caused by inflammation of the lungs, but many don’t know it. Or, if they do know about their condition, they don’t know what treatments are available. That’s why, on Aug. 13, the Ferrell Duncan Clinic Allergy Department is conducting a free community asthma screening.

The event runs from 1 – 4 p.m. at The Library Station (2535 N. Kansas Expy, Springfield). It features asthma screenings, lung function testing, and demonstrations on proper use of asthma medications. Health care providers who specialize in asthma will be on hand to answer questions about the condition.

No registration is required. For more information, call 417-875-3742.
