Kaweah Delta to host March 19 seminar on asthma

Kaweah Delta Health Care District will host a free Wellness & You seminar, “Asthma 101” on Wednesday, March 19, in Visalia.  

The seminar will take place from 12-1 p.m. at Sequoia Regional Cancer Center, 4945 W. Cypress Ave. The speaker will be June Sexton, a retired physical therapist. Sexton is a member of the Tulare County Asthma Coalition and is advisor for the Better Breathers Club. The club meets monthly and offers support to people with chronic lung disease, asthma, lung cancer and other chronic lung diseases.  

Before the event, people can find out if they are at risk for breathing-related problems by taking a free health risk assessment at KaweahDelta.org and clicking on “Health Risk Assessments” or directly at https://ha.healthawareservices.com/ra/578. Those deemed at highest-risk for such problems will be offered a free one-on-one consultation with a Kaweah Delta staff member. Everyone who completes a health risk assessment by Friday, April 4, will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Kindle Fire.
