Breathing is essential to life; the way we take in oxygen can have a major impact on our health. Eating is also essential to life; the way we take in food and liquid can have a major impact on our health. These two systems must work together seamlessly to provide us with a healthy life.
To help the local community breathe and eat easier, Mercy St. Francis Hospital is hosting a free “brunch and learn” on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. Kristina Schnurbusch MS,CCC-SLP, manager at Mercy Therapy Services – Mountain View, plans to discuss why people may cough while they are eating.
“The knowledge you gain during this session could help unlock some ongoing mysteries if you’ve had health problems,” Schnurbusch said. “That’s because swallowing problems or GI problems can cause you to experience uncomfortable coughing and shortness of breath.”
Light refreshments will be provided at the February 28, 2018 event, which will be held in the Sister’s Dining Room across from the cafeteria, located at 100 W. U.S. Highway 60 in Mountain View, Missouri. No RSVP is needed.
