November 28, 2011

Augusta, GA  - It’s estimated that more than 160,000 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year. In many instances, these deaths could have been prevented if only the smoker had put down their cigarette. 

Doctors Hospital is helping to raise awareness about the dangers of smoking as well as help those who may be exposed to it every day, by holding a FREE lung event.
