      FREE Asthma and Allergy Screenings in Astoria, NY

      Unseasonably warm weather is making this early spring season difficult for millions of Americans who suffer from asthma and allergies. To help adults and children who are experiencing symptoms find out if they are at risk, New York-area allergists will conduct free asthma and nasal allergy screenings as a part of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology’s (ACAAI) 16th annual Nationwide Asthma Screening Program.

      Screenings will take place at:

      •May 12, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lawrence Hospital Center, 55 Palmer Avenue. 1st Floor Conference Room, Bronxville

      •May 20, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Emporis Building, 140-51 69th Road, Flushing

      •June 2, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Immaculate Conception Church, 21-47 29th Street, Astoria

      The campaign will screen for conditions, including:
      -Breathing difficulties that might be asthma
      -Nasal allergies, often called hay fever or allergic rhinitis
      -Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), breathing problems that occur during or after exercise

      For those already diagnosed with any of the conditions, the screening provides the chance to ensure their condition is under control.
