Thornton Senior Center – June 2013
Lung Function Screening
The Community Outreach program at National Jewish Medical and Research Center will be here to perform Spirometry or lung function tests. Regular lung function tests help detect lung disease at the earliest possible stages by providing baseline scores that can be measured over time. An annual Spirometry screening is just as important for your lungs and blood pressure tests are for your heart. Friday, June 7 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
