Duke Transplant Physician to Speak at Iredell Memorial
Lung disease is the third-leading cause of death in Iredell County, yet
people tend to brush off the warning signs, which include shortness of
breath and a chronic cough. The American Lung Association says millions
of people with lung disease are unaware that they have it. On January
15, experts from Duke Health's nationally-recognized lung transplant
team will shed light on lung disease and treatment during a special presentation
at Iredell Memorial Hospital.
The Better Breathers Club of Statesville will host Duke pulmonologist Omar
Mohamedaly, MD and Donna Jones, BSN, MBA as they share the latest in treatment
for lung disease and advancements in transplant technology. The event
is open to the public and begins at 10:30 AM on Monday, January 15 in
the Outpatient Services Building Community Classroom, 739 Hartness Road,
The Better Breathers Club provides support and education for those living
with lung disease, giving them tools they need to have a better quality
of life. It meets the third Monday of each month, from 10:30 AM to noon
in the Outpatient Services Building Community Classroom at Iredell Memorial.
No reservations are needed.
