Lung Patients Learn to Eat for Easier Breathing – Wednesday!May 16th, 2011 by Sharon O'Hara
Harrison is doing a super job of helping us get educated and this month’s meeting is no exception.
See a video and brief glimpse of last month’s meeting on Pulmonary Function Tests with Joyce Belnap, RRT and successful Reduced Lung Surgery COPD patient Clint Halliday, there with daughter Laurie Schley. Learn how a spirometry test is taken. Thanks Harrison! I also have video of other folks there and I’ll show them from time to time.
Harrison Medical Center’s Better Breathers Support Group Meeting Program promises to be a real eye opener and help us learn how to eat the right foods for easier breathing , sometimes difficult for some of us to learn – “Eating to Breathe Easier.”
