The B.C. Lung Association, the Interior Health Authority and Health Canada will be hosting a free public forum on lung health and air quality in Grand Forks.
Set for Selkirk College’s Grand Forks campus this Friday, Sept. 21 from 6 to 9 p.m., tobacco, wood smoke and its health impacts, asthma and Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the chemical Radon are amongst topics that will be discussed.
“Your donations to the B.C. Lung Association have in part, helped make this visit to Grand Forks possible and the educational element is valuable for the community,” explained Michele Caskey, B.C. Lung Association volunteer director. “I hope people from the Grand Forks and surrounding area will bring questions and concerns regarding lung health and air quality.”
Again, the public health forum will take place this Friday, Sept. 21 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Selkirk College campus in Grand Forks (486 72nd Ave). It will be held in Room 8, which can be accessed in through the entrance near the lower parking lot.
