[FIRST LOOK] is where we introduce a new pop-up for the very first time. It's now in our Upcoming calendar and should be in yours too.
Let's face it, the traditional approach to health care is cold. You inevitably sit idly in sterile room with fluorescent lighting, dated magazines, and the awkward presences strangers. Even for the most outgoing, it's hard to strike up conversation. Asking someone what they're at the clinic for isn't necessarily the most flattering start to a conversation (trust us, we've tried).
Moving the experience from the day-to-day playground of the medical community, #RTpopup comes into the space at 434 Columbia St. to connect with the public on respiratory health.
Yup, a pop-up on breathing. You know, that subconscious routine that keeps us alive 12 times per minute. Actually, that figure is between 8-16 breaths per minute depending on who you ask, and who better to ask than a Respiratory Therapist (RT)? They'll be in the space answering questions about your breath, lungs, and anything else you use or do that affects your respiratory health.
Who the heck are RTs anyways? These good people specialize in cardiorespiratory (that's your heart and lung folks) to help diagnose, treat, and manage illnesses. You want them in your corner because it's your heart and lungs, and you just don't mess with those.
Leave your e-cigarettes at home (seriously, they're no good, plus you look foolish) and drop in for a free breathing test via the in-house spirometer. It's a welcoming environment with approachable professionals to answer your questions. No appointment necessary, no waiting rooms - guaranteed.
#RTpopup is open from 11AM-10PM on Monday, October 27 to Tuesday, October 28 only. Add it to your calendar from our Upcoming page.
