COPD screenings at UPMC Mercy Walk-in Clinic

UPMC Walk-in Primary Care Clinic will be conducting complimentary Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) screenings in honor of COPD awareness month.

The screenings will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 28 from 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the walk-in clinic at the UPMC Mercy South Side Outpatient Center, 2000 Mary Street.

COPD is being diagnosed much early in life than in the previous years. People may want to attend a screening if they experience any of these risk factors: have smoked more than 100 cigarettes in their lifetime and/or experience shortness of breath.
