Department of Immunology, Rheumatology and Allergy CSK UM IS (building C5), ul. Pomorska 251, would like to invite Łódź dwellers to a free spirometry and medical consultation which will be held on September 17th, 2015, from 8.00 to 14.30. It is necessary to sign up for an appointment in person or by phone: 42 675 73 35.
The campaign is organized by volunteers of Association for Patients with asthma and allergic diseases, existing at the Department of Immunology, Rheumatology and Allergy, Medical University of UM and CSK IS and employees of the Asthma and Allergy Treatment Centre CSK IS. The action turns our city in the world, European and nationwide initiative of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and European Lung Foundation and the Polish Federation of Asthma, Allergy and COPD.
It will be the second spirometric action, planned in our center in Lodz. Last year, it benefited over 90 people. However, from the national reports that the 30,000 people surveyed more than 6,000 received recommendations for the further diagnostics to validate obstructive pulmonary disease.
The primary goal of this year's campaign is to raise awareness of respiratory health in society by getting the Poles to regular spirometry. In a broader context it makes it possible to build a social movement around the theme of healthy lungs and respiratory health that can be the starting point for creating optimized health programs and proper positioning on respiratory health in health policy in the State.
