Mount Saint Mary College will provide free asthma screenings and a free community barbecue this month.
The College’s Desmond Center will offer free asthma health education and screenings during two dates. Both screenings are free to the public. The second event will run simultaneously with a free barbecue.
On Wednesday, April 12, 2023, the screenings will be held at the Mount’s School of Business Atrium, located on the college campus, from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.
On Saturday, April 15, 2023, the screenings will be held at 401 Washington Street in the City of Newburgh from 11:00am to 3:00pm. At the same time, the college will host a free community barbecue just up the road at the Desmond Center, located on campus at 330 Powell Avenue. All are welcome to attend.
The Mount’s Desmond Center provides wellness and educational services for underserved individuals and families, including the uninsured. Anne-Marie Uebbing, an associate Nursing professor at Mount Saint Mary College, recently provided free vision testing to local residents during a joint project with the college’s School of Nursing and Desmond Center for Community Engagement and Wellness.
