RT students from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio marked World Spirometry Day on June 27 by hosting a pulmonary screening event at a local senior center. AARC member Helen Sorenson, MA, RRT, CPFT, FAARC, helped to organize the event, which drew 18 students to the Bob Ross Senior Center from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Together they screened 73 seniors for obstructive lung disease, and got the chance to visit with these seniors about other aspects of their lung health as well.
