The 7th edition of Breathe Magazine hits the streets today! Get your free copy in the Altoona Mirror or at one of many regional businesses or stop by the Lung Disease Center of Central PA at 800 Chestnut Avenue, Altoona. The cover story in this issue of Breathe Magazine is about a disease called Sarcoidosis. This disease with a funny name is a common one we see every year at the Center, but most patients have not heard of this disease. Other features include sleep disorders, which is now the most common afflictions of the 21st century, updates on the Altoona Lung Specialists, the Lung Disease Foundation of Central PA, and much more. You can also see a complete copy of this issue and back issues of Breathe Magazine on our website at www.thelungspecialists.com. ... See MoreSee Less
