Northside Hospital-Forsyth offering free lung function screening

CUMMING -- From 3-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16, Northside Hospital-Forsyth will offer a free lung function test as part of its Breathe Better Forsyth initiative.

Attendees are recommended to take the test if they have a chronic cough, trouble breathing, have a family history of breathing problems or have been exposed to smoking or other irritants.

The test is intended to give patients a better understanding of the risk of pulmonary disease and proper prevention techniques.

Healthcare professionals will conduct the test, which includes a personal consultation with an expert respiratory therapist, smoking cessation resources, osteoporosis screening, blood pressure screening and pulmonary rehabilitation program information.

The test will be held on the hospital’s Bennet Room A and B at 1400 Northside Forsyth Drive, and free parking is available.

Appointments are required, and spaces are expected to full up. Appointments can be made by calling (404) 845-5555 and pressing “0.”
