A set of lungs breathed on the table, but one more easily than the other. One was a soft pink and expanded and contracted with ease. The other was larger, darker and showed a tumor as a result of tobacco use. The booth, set up by Mission Respiratory Therapy, was one of about 40 at yesterday's second annual UNC Asheville Health Fair organized by UNCA health and wellness student Emily Pineda.

After 370 students showed up to the first UNC Asheville Health Fair, senior health and wellness student Emily Pineda decided to not only organize the event again, but to open it to the Asheville community this year. The fair will feature about 40 local health organizations and businesses in addition to about $500 worth of free health assessments ranging from therapeutic massages to eye care.
