WOW! progam to help asthmatics

Dr. Kip Tulin will present a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum entitled “Wheezin’ and Squeezin’: Asthma and Inhaler Use” at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 Blake Ave. in Sequim.

At this forum Tulin invites you to “Come and learn if you are using your inhaler properly so you can get the most bang for your buck … some pointers on effective use of inhalers for asthma and COPD.”

Tulin volunteers as a physician and is the current medical director of the Dungeness Valley Health and Wellness Center. He retired after 30 years as a pediatrician in Central California and moved to Sequim in 2010. His main interest in medical care is the promotion of a healthy balanced lifestyle.

WOW! Working on Wellness is a health education program of Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic—Sequim’s free clinic. The clinic provides basic urgent care and chronic health care services to uninsured community members.

It is supported by more than 70 volunteers, including physicians, other professional health care providers and laypersons, as well as private and public donations from the Sequim community and beyond.

The Basic Urgent Care Clinic is open to patients on Mondays and Thursdays beginning at 5 p.m. Individuals interested in supporting the clinic may call 582-0218.
