A spirometer measures how well your lungs work to help doctors diagnose asthma and other breathing problems. This test is as easy as blowing out your birthday candles.

This Center is designed to reverse upward trends in asthma morbidity by providing proactive outreach care to the increasing number of asthmatic children who have no access to preventive care.
