Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM) was one of the sponsors. Similar events took place around the world as part of the "Healthy Lungs for Life" campaign coordinated by the European Lung Foundation.

The aim of public spirometry tests is to raise awareness of airways diseases such as asthma and COPD, and the importance of measuring lung function with spirometry if you are part of a risk group.
