The screening is free of charge to both YMCA members and to the public. “The bone density screening is easy to do and will take only a few minutes to complete,” said St. Luke Health Services Nurse Anna Waite, LPN. “Screenings can help identify people who may be at risk for osteoporosis and are likely to benefit from further bone density testing.” Nurses will be available to discuss the screening results, share information on how to maintain healthy bones, and answer health-related questions.
Waite added, “We thank the YMCA for partnering with us to provide these free screenings. The information you receive from the screening may help you to improve your health, especially those who may be experiencing the onset of osteoporosis.”
